Transmitting and Enhancing Jewish Knowledge, Experience, and Unity Through Professional Practice with the Aged

By Tovah Lichtenstein

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1990

When working with the aged, the goal of Jewish communal service should be the transmission of Jewish knowledge and experience as ends in themselves, rather than as a means of ensuring Jewish continuity. The aged should be helped to gain Jewish knowledge so they can assume their traditional role as repositories of wisdom. The process of life review, which is a task of old age, can be used as a motivating force in the pursuit of Jewish knowledge.
