spirit hero


SPIRIT attracts Retirees, Not-yet-Retirees, Baby Boomers, Empty Nesters, Sandwich generation parents, and Seniors. The OU recognizes that as the generation of baby boomers leave their professional responsibilities, they are looking for spiritual, educational, physical, and intellectual stimulation. The OU created SPIRIT several years ago as an on-site program and since the start of COVID, it has been presented as an on-line program, which has attracted over 8800 people from throughout the United States and 23 other countries. SPIRIT takes place weekly program on Zoom, Tuesdays at 12 Noon EDT, and focuses on timely topics that are of interest to the +60 demographic.
