Appreciating Our Elders

By Doris Dyen and Reena Sigmund Friedman

These questions were developed to spark and facilitate conversations across the generations gathered around the Thanksgiving table.

  1. What are you proudest about in your life?
  2. What did you learn from difficult experiences in your life?
  3. If you could talk to a former self, which one would you choose? What would you say to that former self?
  4. When you were young, what was the central issue for you? What is central for you now?
  5. Do you feel that God speaks to you now? If so, how? Is it different now than when you were younger?
  6. What are the things you would like to finish in your life?
  7. What would you like your yerushah/legacy to be? How would you like to pass that on?
  8. What do you value most?
