Muriel Heiberger Presents:
6 session series on consecutive Wednesday mornings beginning Jan. 31st, 2018--11 am.
“Old age is not a defeat, but a victory, not a punishment but a privilege. The test of a people is how it behaves toward the old . . . man’s potential for change and growth is much greater than we are willing to admit and old age (can) be regarded not as the age of stagnation but as the age of opportunities for inner growth.”
– Abraham Joshua Heschel
While age does bring with it hard-won truths, the fact that many Americans are living longer than ever means even the elderly are venturing into unknown territory. With that in mind, the JC3 is pleased to introduce Wise Aging, a program focused on using the wisdom and experience accumulated over the years to grow as one grows older.
The program is based on the 2014 book, “Wise Aging: Living With Joy, Resilience and Spirit,” co-written by Thal and Rabbi Rachel Cowen, former executive director of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. Last month, the Institute for Jewish Spirituality held a two-day training session at BJE for 13 people representing synagogues and Jewish organizations across the Valley. Called facilitators, these 13 people will gather together groups and hold interactive discussions offering opportunities for meaningful conversations. The book, “Wise Aging,” provides a wide range of possible topics, including embracing change and assessing life stories; letting go and holding on; revitalizing and nourishing healthy relationships; and finding meaning and joy in a post-retirement identity.
This program will be FREE for members.
Non-members: 100 pesos/session, 500 pesos/full series.
Enrollment limited to 12 participants. Click here to register today!
Torah Discussion Groups
Saturdays @ 12 noon
Separate classes in English and Spanish begin immediately after the Saturday Morning worship service and kiddush.
- Our ever-popular English-language Torah Discussion Group is back, emphasizing conversation among the participants, "sparked by provocative commentaries from scholars ancient and contemporary." (Assuming someone steps forward to moderate, and people attend!)
- The Spanish-language group discusses the weekly parashah/Torah portion and focuses on rabbinic traditions and classical interpretations. Led by Dan Lessner.
