    Rev. Neumark is the Executive Director of Trinity Place Shelter-a transitional shelter in NYC that strives to help homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ+) youth and young adults in New York City transition safely out of the shelter system and grow into independent, positive, and productive adults. Rabbi Paasche-Orlow is the Director of Spiritual Care at Hebrew SeniorLife and established the nation's only accredited Jewish geriatric clinical pastoral education (CPE) program. Much of her work has focused on LGBTQ+ elder care. Their conversation will focus on creating sanctuary for members of the LGBTQ+ community at different phases of life. This event is free and open to the public.
