As part of its SPIRIT Series, the Orthodox Union’s Department of Community Engagement, in collaboration with STAJE and the Anshe Chesed Congregation of Boynton Beach, will present two community lectures for active retirees on the themes of Jewish spirituality and memory. The program will take place on Monday, March 14 at 10 a.m. at the synagogue, located at 10683 El Clair Ranch Road.
SPIRIT, an acronym for Stimulating Program Initiative for Retirees, is a project of the Orthodox Union. STAJE is an organization offering quality social and Torah educational events targeted to Jewish women and men ages sixty and over, with an emphasis on volunteer opportunities.
The featured speakers at this event include Alyse November, LCSW, on “Brain Games: Exercises, Techniques, And Strategies for Mental Fitness”; and Rabbi Menachem Jaroslawicz, Mara d’Asra of the Delray Orthodox Synagogue on “Torah Perspectives on Memory.”
Rebbetzin Judi Steinig, associate director of Community Services at the Orthodox Union, and coordinator of the series, commented, “The OU recognizes that as the generation of baby boomers leaves their professional responsibilities, they are looking for opportunities for educational stimulation and involvement in community activities. The goal of this program is to provide active retirees with opportunities for spiritual and intellectual growth within their community.”
The event is sponsored by Nancy and Yale Freiman, Dinah and Robert Spitz, and Lucy and Leon Winchel.
Advanced reservations are required by Thursday, March 10. The fee is $10; lunch will be included.
