A small group of congregants at Temple Beth-El in Northbrook have joined together for ongoing conversations about “Aging Wisely”. We kicked off with a 5-session “class” that began with a loose structure and then became free-form discussion of shared experiences, thoughts, and resources. When that class concluded, several participants chose to continue the inquiry. We are seeking both men and women to join us in the conversation of shared perspectives and wisdom. 

For the time being, we’ll be referencing two books as starting-off points:  “Wise Aging” by Rabbi Rachel Cowan & Dr. Linda Thal and “Getting Good at Getting Older” by Rabbi Laura Geller and Richard Siegel.  Where the conversations go from there will be a journey of shared learning. Both books are available on Amazon, but are not required for participation. 

Starting in January of 2022, we will meet virtually (for now) on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 9:30 am. If you are interested in checking it out, please register below and you’ll be provided the Zoom link prior to the meeting date. Also, please invite friends you think would enjoy the experience.  No one has to be synagogue affiliated to join.
