Rabbi Laura Geller, co-author of “Getting Good at Getting Older” — a pragmatic, playful, and wise book about how to embrace and navigate the later years of life — will be leading a weekend of workshops at Temple Sinai in Marblehead, beginning Friday, Jan. 20.
Geller, rabbi emerita of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, was twice named one of Newsweek’s 50 Most Influential Rabbis in America, and PBS Next Avenue selected her as one of its 50 Influencers in Aging in 2017.
Prior to becoming one of the first women to be selected through a national search to lead a major metropolitan synagogue, Geller served as the director of Hillel for the University of Southern California for 14 years and as the Pacific Southwest region’s executive director of the American Jewish Congress for four years.
“Getting Good at Getting Older” was named a National Jewish Book Award finalist in the category of Contemporary Jewish Life and Practice.
The cost is $54 for Temple Sinai members, $72 for the rest of the community, and there are also sponsorship opportunities ($180 couples/$90 single), which includes all meals, programs and a single copy of Geller’s book.
To reserve, send a check to Temple Sinai, 1 Community Road, Marblehead, MA 01945. For more information, contact the temple office at 781-631-2763.
