Those supporting vulnerable community members are part of a lineage going back to the biblical priests. Outreach to those needing support is part of Jewish spiritual practice. Through text-study and “best practices”, the workshops will broaden the spectrums of care practice beyond designated caring committees to include all members of a community. We will address issues of self-care and community building to ensure resilience and continuity among care providers and draw inspiration from traditional and contemporary Jewish sources and from greater community.
