Hiddur has generated innovative spiritual resources and scholarship on aging and Judaism. Our Sacred Seasons celebration kits are innovative tools for elders and caregivers to celebrate Jewish holidays in various elder-care settings. We co-produced the report "Gearing Up for the Age Wave: A Guide for Synagogues," an instrument for congregations seeking to address and engage aging Jews. We also have provided leadership in how to engage elders spiritually, through model programs and new rituals.
We are pleased to offer "When the Body Begins to Fail: Reaching Out in Prayer," a collection of original prayers by Tamara Arnow, a participant in our Shades of Gray seminar.
