From our Executive Vice President and CEO, Joyce Dubensky: I just got back from presenting on two of Tanenbaum program’s at the AJAS Annual Conference. The participants were leaders in providing residential care for the elderly from across the country. What an experience!
Though their organizations are sectarian (unlike Tanenbaum) and their missions and visions derive from Jewish values, they often serve people from diverse religious backgrounds and have many staff who are not Jewish. The conversation was rich, as we talked about ways to accommodate staff who are not of the organization’s dominant faith tradition and how to provide care for people from different traditions.
