In the spirit of L’dor V’dor, Michael Perice—a rabbinic intern and education director at Congregation Beth Tikvah in Marlton, NJ—took his Hebrew school students on a field trip to the Lion’s Gate assisted-living center in Cherry Hill. The students had an opportunity to ask the senior residents about their Jewish heritage and experiences in Israel. In turn, the older generation was glad to pass down their wisdom and guidance.
“‘From generation to generation’ is a very basic and wise Jewish concept,” said Perice. “Sometimes, we just need to help along the circumstances to make it happen.”
