Hillel School Intergenerational Program

This is the second year that the Hillel Day School has partnered with

the Jewish Home of Rochester for its Intergenerational Program.

A group of 10 students and 10 Jewish elders meet monthly to enjoy

lunch, learn about each other’s interests and values and celebrate

relevant holidays together.

They kicked off the year with a meet-and-greet and welcomed in the

sweet New Year for Rosh Hashanah with a story told by Rabbi Adam.

Apples and honey were enjoyed by everyone. Other activities through

this year have included:

Celebrating Sukkot

– students and residents strung gourds, fruit and hung decorations in our Sukkah at JHR.

Veteran’s Day

– both generations put their gratitude towards those that have served or are currently serving

and sent out veteran’s day letters. A Resident Veteran in the program shared stories about his service during

Korean War with the group.


– they made latkes in the culinary kitchen and listened to the Rabbi as he discussed the significance

of why we eat some of these oil treats.

Celebrating Diversity

– Bonnie Abrahams from the Jewish Federation was invited to sing songs that celebrate

our diversity in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Celebration of Tu B’Shevat

(also known as the celebration of trees) – they talked about conservation and

continued to narrow the gap between generations. They continued with their questionnaires and casual

conversations while sharing a meal together.

Celebrating Purim

– the students entertained the elders with a skit focused on this important holiday.


– the group made some Passover crafts.

In late April, elders from the Jewish Home attended the Hillel Day School for

Holocaust Remembrance Day


They attended a program and ate lunch in the students’ cafeteria.
