Where do we turn for guidance as we face the challenges of our aging society? Where do we seek meaning in our lives as we age? The answer, argues Rabbi Richard Address, is to be found in our relationships. Using key texts from the Torah, he shows that the foundation of a happy and healthy life is the meaning we seek in the community of others – our family, friends, and congregations – and in our most fundamental relationship with God. This theology of relationships can bring much needed change to the Jewish communities that have nurtured us for so much of our lives, and help us make for ourselves an older adulthood that is healthy and sacred.
