The Jewish community is diverse and includes people from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of perspectives, experiences, customs, life causes and passions. This very diversity enriches our lives. Yet, it is not often that we have an opportunity to come together to share about how being Jewish has impacted our ongoing life journeys. Three members of our community who emigrated from Mexico (Benji Bross), Russia (Tania Ionin) and Sweden (Harry Dankowicz) will talk a bit about their personal journeys. Participants will be invited to join a group discussion about the themes and stories what are shared. Come connect, learn about Jewish life in other countries, and get inspired along with us.
The CHAI Seniors Program is coordinated by CUJF and funded by the Goldberg-Gordon-Yairi Fund for Seniors and the Libby & Harry Miller Memorial Fund of CUJEF.
