FREE SEMINARS or LECTURES on ISSUES RELATED TO THE ELDERLY
Our website is dedicated to senior citizens and those who care about them. To help achieve our goals we are listing below free seminars or lectures that deal with the issues of the aging. Our listing does not mean that we are recommending these particular events. We are doing this strictly as a public service, and to help publicize free events that may help you better understand how to deal with some of the problems of the elderly.

During the 107 years of its existence, The Workmen's Circle / Arbeter Ring has provided vital services for hundreds-of-thousands
of American Jews. Our membership today includes thousands of elderly individuals, many of whom are survivors of the holocaust.
The New York Region has launched a friendly visitor program directed to the survivor population among our members. We have joined with the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services and 3G New York (grandchildren of survivors) to create a meaningful connection for the most vulnerable of our members.
Each volunteer in this program will be paired with one holocaust survivor. You will be trained by staff of the JBFCS and logistics will be coordinated by Workmen?s Circle staff.
If you are a compassionate, concerned, and giving individual who would like to touch the life of a holocaust survivor You can do this!
And if you know even just a bisele Yiddish this will bring a smile to these Yiddish speakers and offer you a rare opportunity to converse even just a bit in mome lushen.
We believe that isolated, homebound seniors in general, and holocaust survivors most particularly, receive enormous satisfaction from knowing that their Jewish legacy lives on in the younger generations. Similarly, all of us in the post-holocaust generations can deepen their roots in the Jewish community by connecting directly with survivors whose experience is some of the most particular and meaningful in the history of our people.
Be a part of something special. Join us on March 6th to find out more.
