Sacred Aging - January 29th 10am - noon
SACRED AGING: LIVING THE NEXT THIRD. What do you want to do with your life when you’re 60? 70? 80? “What do I want to do next?” Join panelists as we explore how to prepare for the years after retirement. What questions should we ask ourselves? What financial decisions do we have to make, so we can take those next steps?
Scholar-in-Residence -- March 31 - April 2nd
SAVE THE DATE -- ALDEN SOLOVY, SCHOLAR IN RESIDENCE: We’re very excited to be bringing poet and liturgist Alden Solovy to Beth Emeth. Solovy spreads joy and excitement for prayer. His work has been used by people of all faiths throughout the world, in private prayer and public ceremonies, including at our High Holiday services. He’s written more than 600 pieces of new liturgy, offering a fresh new Jewish voice, challenging the boundaries between poetry, meditation, personal growth and prayer. He’s a teacher, a writing coach and an award-winning essayist and journalist. Stay tuned for more details!
