Imagining an Inclusive and Intergenerational Community

By Norma U. Levitt

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Fall 2010

The author offers suggestions on how the community can make Jewish life and all life more meaningful for every generation. She states that to be a member of a well-grounded, trustworthy Jewish institution or organization can give participants both companionship and entry into interesting programs. Opportunities for volunteerism are central to the existence and meaning of many local, national and international organizations. Volunteer-focused organizations form a stronghold of Jewish society. They make many lives, both of recipients and active volunteers of all ages, gratifyingly meaningful.
