We all know that ‘selfies,’ photographic self-portraits, are a fun way to capture a moment in time, tell a story and share it. While “selfies” are especially popular with younger people, portrait photography is a remarkable way to catch a glimpse of a smile, glance or feeling -- if just for an instant -- and reveal the inner self of the portrait’s subject at a specific instance in their life.
Here at Lenbrook, Atlanta’s premier Life Plan Community in Buckhead, we have an active and vibrant tradition of celebrating Jewish life, including monthly Shabbat services followed by a meal for Lenbrook’s Jewish residents, their adult children, and often, their (non-Jewish) guests.
With more than 500 residents living at Lenbrook, there are a lot of life experiences available to learn from. That’s what Lenbrook’s Training and Development Specialist, Tammy Washington, hopes to share with the community’s associates and interns. “Can you imagine all that knowledge and understanding about life that’s within these walls?” asked Washington. “We’re hoping to unlock that vast treasure chest and offer the most incredible learning experiences.”

In the past year, our Residents Association has been able to propel a number of exciting new developments at Lenbrook, and I have been honored to serve as its president.

As a chaplain, I have the privilege of interacting with our residents from varied religious groups and denominations within our Lenbrook Community, as well as those in the community with no set religious affiliation.
I’m a firm believer that everyone needs some type of community in order to thrive -- a belief that's supported by study after study. One of the blessings of a community as large and diverse as Lenbrook is that residents have a vast selection of friends and neighbors available to connect with and create community!
