Blessing of the F(l)eet Interfaith Ceremony Covered in the Boston Globe

Blessing of the Fleet

2Life Communities, Hebrew SeniorLife, and First Parish in Brookline united in Coolidge Corner for "the Blessing of the F(l)eet!: An Interfaith Celebration of How We Move". More than two dozen people joined in to bless older adults' mobility aids. The Boston Globe spoke with 2Life's Rabbi Giulia Fleishman about the event and embracing change:

“Sometimes people and their bodies change. If we have to use wheelchairs or walkers throughout our lives, that can sometimes feel like a burden. Especially for older adults, growing into them can be challenging. This is a chance to really recognize the gifts that these devices offer us — it really can awaken a new relationship with them.” - Rabbi Giulia Fleishman
