What does it mean to come home after military service? Does military service and war change the idea of home forever? This storytelling event presents a poignant exploration of these and other questions that resonate with many veterans. In addition to a talk by Dr. Max Rayneard, co-creator of The Telling Project, veterans share their military experiences—whether in Vietnam, Iraq, or on the home front—and how their service continues to shape them. The discussions will include issues ranging from mental health to raising families to finding one's purpose.


This event is part of Wurzweiler’s Care Café series, a free, traveling, psycho-educational community resource program, which support individuals and families seeking help and information around issues of concern. Through presentations on a variety of topics, Care Café aims to educate, motivate, empower, and nurture hope around pressing psychosocial challenges and solutions.


The Telling Project is a national performing arts nonprofit founded by Jonathan Wei in 2008 that employs theater to deepen our understanding of the military and our veterans' experiences. Understanding fosters receptivity, easing veterans' transition back to civil society, allowing communities to benefit from the skills and experience they bring with them. The Telling Project has produced over 60 original productions, putting over 300 veterans on stages across the United States.


Presented by Yeshiva University’s Wurzweiler School of Social Work, in partnership with The Telling Project and in association with Lincoln Center Veterans Initiative


Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
