Getting Good at Getting Older is a tour for all those of "a certain age" through the resources and skills needed to navigate the years between maturity (building careers/raising families) and frail old age. It brings humor, warmth, and more than 4,000 years of Jewish experience to the question of how to shape this new stage of life. 

Getting Good at Getting Older gives the “young older” an opportunity to discover in Jewish tradition and culture the tools to bring meaning and purpose to this new stage of life. It offers ways to transform the paradigm of aging from one of decline to one of opportunity. And it will empower individuals of all backgrounds to change their lives as they change the world.
