Rabbi David Levin visits this episode of the Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast to discuss his new Jewish Relationships Initiative. The Jewish Relationships Initiative is a nonprofit organization formed to provide outreach focusing on the unaffiliated Jewish population of Greater Philadelphia. JRI seeks to create relationships through meaningful connection to Jewish wisdom, ritual and community. We do this through lifecycle events, study and learning, conversation and connection to others.
