Wise Aging Together


Temple Ahavat Achim (86 Middle St., Gloucester, MA)

Sunday, November 1st from 10 am to 12 pm

We can look forward to a longer life span than in any time in history. This trend is expected to continue.
What are the opportunities, the concerns, challenges, the questions? How do we navigate the inevitable changes that will accompany us? How do we make the best use of our extra years? This is new terrain. There a no precedents and few models to follow. No paths but the steps we take, one after the other.


At TAA we are starting a year long Wise Aging Project, partly in cooperation with Jewish Family and Children Service and in collaboration with other community resources. Through readings from secular and Jewish texts, guest lectures, guided exercise and discussion groups, we will explore, this life stage together.

Our First event will be a presentation and discussion by Marjorie Sokoll and her staff from the JF&CF Spirituality and Aging  program. We are thrilled and excited to be starting this project with you.
