IN-PERSON SERIES: “Growing Older/Growing Wiser,” led by Rabbi Ed Feinstein and Sally Weber, LCSW. Explore what the Jewish tradition teaches about finding meaning and purpose in later adulthood and share with one another our own reflections on growing older...how we stay creative and productive in later life, how we stay connected, and what really matters to us now.  

At 13, we celebrate “Bar/Bat Mitzvah” for the beginning of adulthood. At each ten year mark, 60, 70, 80, 90… let's celebrate “Bar/Bat Hochmah.” Hochmah means wisdom. At big birthdays, we need to share the wisdom we have won from life. If our kids can spend months with rabbis learning Torah and preparing to become Jewish adults, we deserve the same privilege -- preparation, learning, sharing a guided process of reflection to forge a new vision of our life purposes and what’s important now. And then, we celebrate a personal ritual for sharing this moment of life with those we love.
