Our Prayer Book As A Prism for Our Own Aging

Join us as we explore the background of our prayers and how they can provide a pathway to our sacred aging.
Rabbi Address* will lead these conversations and Rabbi Jill Maderer will facilitate the final session to help us process our learning together.
Topic: Sh'ma/V'ahavta & Hashkeveinu 

Sh'ma/V'ahavta
Judaism as a "holistic" model for life. The inter-connection of mind, body and soul. How this
impacts a Jewish view of health and wellness as we age.

Hashkeveinu
The fragility of life. The concept and importance of gratitude as we age. How do we deal with the "necessary losses" that longevity brings to us? What about our own choices?

Bring your own vegetarian dinner of a snack to share.
