We are all involved in the process of aging: from providing for our own future to providing care for family and friends; from finding solutions to make our own homes aging-active to helping our community fulfill the mitzvah of “honoring our parents.”
Over the coming year, the Jewish Federation is partnering with East Bay congregations and Jewish organizations to explore how we can work together to respond to the needs of our aging Jewish community. Through presentations by experts in the field and round table discussions, we will explore models where people can have more satisfying lives, work and relationships in what is now being called “The Third Age.”

Over the past two centuries, life expectancies throughout most of the world have greatly increased. Today, many people will enjoy a thirty year “bonus” and live into their 90’s. To see Swedish statistician and medical doctor Hans Rosling discuss how different countries in the world have improved life expectancies over the past 200 years, click here. (YouTube)
Rosling co-founded the Gapminder Foundation together with his son Ola Rosling and daughter-in-law Anna Rosling Rönnlund. Gapminder developed the Trendalyzer software that converts international statistics into moving, interactive graphics. His lectures using Gapminder graphics to visualise world development have won awards.
