Rabbi Dayle Friedman, a pioneer in forging a Jewish spiritual response to the challenges and blessings of later life, is Rabbi Address's guest on this week's Boomer Generation Radio program.
She is the founder of Hiddur: The Center for Aging and Judaism of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, which works to foster vibrant aging in the context of multigenerational community through professional education, scholarship and spiritual resources for elders and their caregivers.
Rabbi Friedman is the moderator of the web resource GrowingOlder.co (the “.co” domain is correct — not the usual “.com.”)
Boomer Generation Radio airs on WWDB-AM 860 every Tuesday at 10 a.m., and features news and conversation aimed at Baby Boomers and the issues facing them as members of what Rabbi Address calls “the club sandwich generation.” You can hear the show live on AM 860, or streamed live from the WWDB website.
