About the Event
Interested? Reach out to Rabbi Jessica Locketz at email@example.com for more information.
There is no set of instructions for getting older—for the shifts in our social and support networks, the feeling of invisibility, the angst of dealing with aging parents, the mixed signals of entering retirement, or the surprising turns in our relationships with ourselves, our partners, friends, and colleagues. On the other hand, those of us currently in this pool stage can count ourselves as part of an extraordinary, history-making generation—pioneers in understanding and making the most of this “third chapter” of life. Many of us will be blessed with unprecedented healthy years ahead, full of potential for learning and growth.
Join Rodef Shalom congregant Marcie Gerson and Rabbi Jessica Locketz for this cohort experience designed for Jewish adults 55 and older. Anyone open to conversations about what it means not just to get older but to age wisely is invited to attend. The group will meet twice each month January-April and will draw resource material from the book Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience, and Spirit, Co-written by Rabbi Rachel Cowan (z”l). Purchasing the book is suggested but not required.
