Care Conference 2023
11 June at 09:30 - 15:00
Join LJ, MRJ and the Honeycomb Project on 11 June at Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue for a day of learning and skill building around the topic of well-being and care in our communities.
Our keynote speaker will be Barbara Altounyan, founder of Stories for Life, whose mission is to give everyone nearing the end of their life the opportunity to record their stories and memories on audio, leaving their voice as a treasured legacy for families and friends, free of charge. As well as offering this opportunity to LJ and MRJ members, Stories for Life would like to train ‘biographers’ in synagogues to record stories of fellow members, developing community connections and intergenerational relationships.
Other confirmed workshops include:
- Bereavement Care
- SEN Inclusion with Gesher School
- Living with chronic health conditions with Jewish Care
- Setting up therapeutic groups
- Peri and Post Natal Depression
- Combating loneliness and isolation for older adults with Nightingale House
- Honeycomb 101 – a brief induction to the Honeycomb training which uses Jewish texts to understand care and support work
The day will end with a networking lunch and the opportunity to speak informally with our presenters about their work and how they can engage with your community.
The conference is open to all – whether you are an experienced volunteer, new to care, thinking about volunteering or Care Conference 2023Care Conference 2023someone with an interest in one or more of these areas, there will be something for you. The registration form for the conference is here.
