Rabbi Laura Geller, Getting Good at Getting Older
Laura Geller discusses her book, Getting Good at Getting Older, with Nancy Siegel Heinrich, CEO of Jewish Senior Life.
The baby boomer generation transformed society in the 60s and 70s and changed the way the world saw young people. Now this generation is in their 60s and 70s and is challenging assumptions about aging by living longer, being more active, and doing things differently. This book gives the “young older” an opportunity to discover, in Jewish tradition and culture, the tools, resources, and skills needed to navigate the years between maturity and old age and create a new paradigm for growing older.
