Join a friendly group that meets monthly to share stories on assigned themes such as: “Your Relationship with Israel,” “Treasured Objects” or “Your Greatest Accomplishments.” No writing skill is necessary since it’s more about the story. This is a great opportunity for self-reflection, starting your memoir, and getting to know other warm and wonderful synagogue members. Facilitated by member Nancy Alpert, LCSW.
