TELEM Reflections

“My previous reading buddies have not only learned from me, but I’ve learned valuable qualities such as patience, courage and perseverance. I truly believe I grew emotionally as a person in the [TELEM- Jewish Literacy Coalition Program.]”
–Rashi Day School Student 

“I’ve stuck with TELEM throughout my high school life and made it a priority. It makes me feel good to make others feel good.”
–Temple Sinai of Sharon Connecting Generations Participant

“My connections with the residents have gone beyond meeting with the residents on Tuesday nights. When the husband of a resident died, I attended the Shiva, and it helped both of us.”
–Temple Israel of Sharon Participant

“I am most proud of how much I have been able to learn from my TELEM experience, and how many different people I have met. Simply by going to the Family Table each month, I have been able to talk to so many interesting people, and to see how management and work at a food pantry happens.”
–Temple Sinai of Brookline Participant
