Still Fruitful in the Fullness of Age

Join us for Shabbat services tonight with special guest Rabbi Geller. She is the author of Getting Good at Getting Older, and will be speaking on the topic of Still Fruitful in the Fullness of Age. Her book is a tour for all of us of a certain age through the resources and skills we need to navigate the years between maturity and old age. It brings humor, warmth, and more than 4,000 years of Jewish experience to the question of how to shape this new stage of life.
