Spiritual resources on aging for individuals, professionals & communities.

If we are lucky, we will all make the journey of aging. We can grow as we face growing older. Growing Older offers provisions—spiritual resources—for this journey, whether you are making it yourself, or you are accompanying others as a family or professional caregiver, or as part of a community. Growing Older, the practice of Rabbi Dayle A. Friedman, offers classes, lectures, workshops, spiritual care and spiritual guidance to foster meaning and wholeness.

Now out: Rabbi Dayle’s new book, Jewish Wisdom for Growing Older: Finding Your Grit and Grace Beyond Midlife, published by Jewish Lights Publishing.
