By Rachel Eisenberg, Selma Gwatkin, Elizabeth Tracy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

This article describes the development and implementation of a training seminar for Jewish Big Brothers and Big Sisters co-taught by a Jewish educator and social worker. The goals of the seminar were to Judaically enrich the lives of Big Brothers/Sisters and to build a linkage between Jewish values and tradition and contemporary concepts of helping and volunteerism. The seminar helped the participants gain a greater appreciation of the ways in which their volunteer service both carried out and contributed to Jewish values and traditions.
