Hands touching hands


We need touch. We need the comfort, the connection and the security. Touch has powerful emotional benefits. The power of touch is profound. It is the first language that we learn and our first sense to develop. Touch is a form of communication that does not need words to express the intention. Whether the touch is to share a joyous moment with someone or perhaps soothe any fears or anxieties, the touch is meant to convey a "sense of worth." For me, when I touch an elder that I visit through the programs with The Jewish Pavilion, my touch is to reassure them and convey to them ..."Yes, I see you. You do matter." Let's all make an effort to "Reach Out and Touch Someone"...

- Judith Purcell Appleton, Jewish Pavilion program director
