Temple Sholom of Chicago’s 40’s and 50’s events seek to connect with middle-aged Chicago Jews who glean from their religion a deeper sense of community, connection, meaning, spirituality, inspiration, as well as a context for doing good in the world.

Join us as we explore the spiritual gifts of life after fifty.
Sociologist Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot writes, “We must
develop a compelling vision of later life, one that does not
assume a trajectory of decline after fifty, but recognizes this
as a time of potential change, growth, and new learning…”
Zalman Schacter-Shalomi teaches, ‘As the period in which we
harvest the fruits of a lifetime’s labor, it gives us the panoramic
vision from which spiritual wisdom flows.’”
Led by Cantor Katzman, with Debra Paskind, and Andy Simmons, the group meets on a monthly basis to study, schmooze, eat, sing, pray, and investigate this rewarding period of our lives. The gatherings often combine Havdalah, text study, singing, camaraderie, and, of course, noshing. For more information contact Jason@sholomchicago.org or call 773-435-1533.
