How has SPIRIT helped you? Do you have any personal stories about how SPIRIT has helped you cope with the Pandemic? Perhaps you re-connected with a friend you saw on Zoom. Maybe you learned something that was very helpful to you?

Please let us know. . . We would like to include them in the OU’s Impact Report that will be published shortly. Please respond to with any reflections that we can publish with your name.

PERFECT PAIR is a project of our new summer initiative, Project Community 2020, in which a mature adult will be matched up with a teen with similar interests to build a friendship and to share a Living Legacy of wisdom, values, humor, experiences and more. As mature adults, you have so much knowledge and life experience to share with the younger generations. Through weekly talks and discussion, we hope you will build a special bond that will enhance your life and the life of your “perfect pair.”
The interactions will be in a virtual setting – either by phone, WhatsAPP video call, FaceTime, ZOOM, or another way in which you are comfortable interacting so that there are no concerns of transmission of COVID-19.
If you are part of the Sandwich Generation, and have a parent or other older relative who may benefit from this program, feel free to complete a form for that individual (with his/her permission).
