Getting Good at Getting Older with Rabbi Laura Geller

***NOW ONLINE!!!***


Join us for an evening of discussion, learning and laughter - over wine & cheese - as Rabbi Geller teaches us the Jewish tools of sacred, vibrant, joyful aging!

Rabbi Laura Geller, Rabbi Emerita of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, twice named one of Newsweek’s 50 Most Influential Rabbis in America, was named by PBS Next Avenue as one of the fifty 2017 Influencers in Aging. Prior to becoming one of the first women to be selected through a national search to lead a major metropolitan synagogue, Rabbi Geller served as the Director of Hillel of University of Southern California for 14 years and as the Pacific Southwest Region's Executive Director of the American Jewish Congress for 4 years. She was featured in the PBS documentary “Jewish Americans.” Author of numerous articles in books and journals, she was on the editorial board of The Torah: A Women’s Commentary. She serves as a Fellow of the Corporation of Brown University from where she graduated in 1971. In addition, she serves on the boards of Encore.org and the Jewish Women's Archive's. Ordained by Hebrew Union College in 1976, she is the third woman in the Reform Movement to become a rabbi. She is a parent (with Richard Siegel z”l) to Andy Siegel and Ruth Siegel and Joshua (Janelle) Goldstein and Elana Goldstein (Zach Rausnitz) and the very proud Savta to Avery and Levi Goldstein.

    “Getting good at getting older” is relevant to my life! And I looked forward to this event. However, due to the precautions we have been advised to observe because of Covid 19, I have to withdraw my RSVP. I regret this action; I wish, of course, it was otherwise.
