Mindful Jewish Aging

Mindful Jewish Aging (MJA) brings together a dedicated group of people who are focused on exploring 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…” 

While 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, Debra Paskind and Andy Simmons, the group meets on a monthly basis to study, schmooze, eat, sing and investigate this rewarding period of our lives, using ancient and modern texts, poetry, art and music as our guides.
