The Story of Your Name Recap

Mon, 09/18/2017 - 1:36pm -- Seniors Group

On Wednesday, September 13th, following the usual lox and bagel lunch, Certified Autobiography Instructor Edna Groves guided us through two writing exercises. The purpose, at this time of year which calls us to introspection, was to think about our given name, and how it has come to reflect who we are.

At first glance, this may seem to be a sweet and simple task, but when taking the time to contemplate who we were named for – in English and/or in Hebrew, Yiddish – how we feel about the name(s), our nicknames, who calls us what, etc. personal stories unfold.
