UPCOMING PRESENTATIONS, Rabbi Malka Drucker and Rick Light Present FROM AGEING TO SAGEING, A HaMakom Salon Series, Thursday, January 14 from 6:45-8:45 PM, $20/ salon session, HaMakom Members: $18/session

Facing aging, dying, and accelerating losses isn’t for sissies. It’s not elective, either. Women gathered a generation ago to birth a movement that changed the place of women in society. It is now our time: we who have lived long enough and know the preciousness of life. Let’s come together and explore how to embrace our wisdom, live without fear, and be a blessing to the world. We’ll meet monthly from 6:45-8:45 PM, the first Thursday of each month at UUC. We plan to screen films, discuss books, and tell the truth to one another, as we share the enjoyment of being with others on this journey.
A note from the Rabbi Malka Drucker: ‘Last month I met a dynamic and warm radio host from Dallas, Alise Cortez. She interviewed me for her show, intrigued by my second career as rabbi after being a writer, and I spoke a lot about the exciting Sageing work that comforts, strengthens, and guides me.

"Women and Judaism," the editor writes, "carries an intention to do more than bring the reader new ideas to ponder. For Jewish women, it's a charge to claim and re-claim their rightful place in their tradition. For non-Jewish sisters, we hope that it encourages you to bring change in your traditions as you learn of our effort to be counted as full members of an ancient spiritual community."
