Feast on Stories this Thanksgiving

Telling and listening to stories creates a powerful connection. Take some time to create meaning during the holiday by using the following conversation prompts with family and friends:

  1. What are you thankful for this year?
  2. Do you/does your family have any special Thanksgiving rituals?
  3. If you could invite any Jewish woman to your Thanksgiving meal, who would it be and why?
  4. What is your/your family's immigration story?
