This past month, Beth Israel Synagogue hosted Claire Rolheiser from Welcome Home at Rabbi Daniel Friedman’s monthly class.
This month featured “Don’t pass over your neighbour this Passover.” Rabbi Friedman taught that in the Haggadah which we recite at the Passover Seder, we say a special prayer to welcome all those in need. Claire along with volunteer Maria shared their experiences with Welcome Home. Maria told us about her new friend Gloria who now feels comfortable going to the movies on her own when at first she felt scared in going out with anyone let alone by herself.
Claire is ready to present at your place of worship to discuss this meaningful opportunity for volunteers to share the simple gift of genuine friendship to someone coming out of crisis. Drop her an invite so that folks from your community can learn about and participate in this beautiful program.
