Wise Aging is a new, groundbreaking program specifically designed to meet the social, emotional and spiritual needs of Jewish seekers entering second adulthood.
In Wise Aging, you will be guided through reflective work that enables you to come to new understandings about your life, self, values and Jewish practices. Learning modes include text study, active listening, mindfulness meditation, exercises, reflection and journaling. We will meet regularly to learn, share experiences and acquire skills for making changes in our lives that will lead to a deeper sense of well-being.
Sessions are based on resources developed for the Institute for Jewish Spirituality by Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal, primarily “Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience, and Spirit.”

About Donna Rubenoff
Donna discovered meditation and studied mind-body techniques during a time of stress. As a peer leader at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine at MGH, she mentored those with stress-related illnesses to help them elicit the relaxation response through meditation. Donna finds inspiration in studying Torah as well as Buddhist teachings, which she believes deepen our understanding of ourselves through a spiritual connection. Donna leads mindfulness and meditation groups at synagogues (including Ohabei Shalom), senior residence communities and adult education centers. Donna was trained by the Institute of Jewish Spirituality to facilitate the Wise Aging curriculum. Donna is a beloved member and teacher within the TOS community.
