Older Adult Programming: Programs for the second act of life

The following groups are for members, and are currently meeting on Zoom every 2-4 weeks. 

Bringing Meaning to Life's Transitions

Facilitators: Lee Pollak & James Davis
Wednesdays, 4 pm

"Our lives can be viewed as 2 broad chapters. The earlier chapter of our lives was spent building a family, social and professional relationships i.e. building a résumé. The present chapter is about reflecting on what we have worked so hard to achieve and using that wisdom to bring meaning and contentment to our lives." From David Brooks, The Second Mountain.

Issues discussed:

  • In what way does our past define and inform us and facilitate a more meaningful next chapter in our lives.
  • What are we grateful for.
  • What are the challenges and opportunities of this stage of life.
  • Ageism, how do we recognize it and what is its impact on our lives.
  • How do we deal with suffering.
  • Strategies for growth and meaning despite diminishing capacity.
  • How does Judaism compare to other religious traditions in dealing with transitions.

Memoir Writing

Facilitator: Gale Gottlieb
Mondays, every other week, 3 pm on Zoom

This gathering of potential memoir writers is for everyone. We all have memories, ideas, advice, and even regrets. This is an opportunity to put them on paper and share with a confidential group in a safe setting. The purpose is not style or writing ability but rather the recording and sharing of memories that make each of us unique. For more information, contact Gale Gottlieb.
