“A human being would certainly not grow to be 70 or 80 years old if this longevity had no meaning for the species to which they belong. The afternoon of human life must also have a significance of its own and cannot be merely a pitiful appendage to life’s morning.”
This spirited workshop on aging invites participants to explore together how we understand and find meaning and purpose in the experience of growing older—the challenges, the transitions, the losses and the joys. This interactive workshop will include Jewish wisdom for growing older, current research and practices to foster wellness during the pandemic and beyond.
The facilitator is Marjorie Sokoll, M.Ed., director of the Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller Center for Jewish Healing at Jewish Family & Children’s Service.
This workshop is sponsored by Temple Emmanuel of Wakefield and The Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project.+ More... - Less...
