Finding Connection and Meaning in Our World: “How to Get By With A Little Help from Our Friends”

with Rabbi Laura Geller, co-author of Getting Good at Getting Older

The High Holy Days give us the time and the spaciousness to take a breath, step back and ask ourselves who we are and who we want to be. And we notice… we are a year older than we were last year. For some of us there are more years ahead than behind, yet we might not know the path to uncovering our unique purpose. For others there are more years behind than there are ahead, and that recognition challenges us to think about how to fill our lives with more meaning and intention.

Whether you are older or a millennial, loneliness is a national epidemic. This session will focus on how we cultivate friendship and how friendship and community change as our lives change.  On these days of reflection how do we learn to “get by with a little help from our friends?”

Rabbi Laura Geller, Emerita Rabbi of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, was the first women to be selected through a national search to lead a major metropolitan synagogue as Senior Rabbi. She was twice named one of Newsweek’s 50 Most Influential Rabbis in America and 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.  Ordained by Hebrew Union College in 1976, she is the third woman in the Reform Movement to become a rabbi. She is a founder of the first synagogue based village, ChaiVillageLA, which is part of the national Village Movement. Along with her husband Richard Siegel (of blessed memory), she edited Getting Good at Getting Older.
