Dr. Harry Moody, current Director of Academic Affairs for the AARP and author of The Five Stages of the Soul and Aging: Concepts and Controversies, will headline the conference.
“The process of aging can be a period of realignment, of spiritual awakening and inner exploration. As people live longer, this period remains an uncharted ocean in our society; we hope to challenge ourselves to reconsider this new frontier,” says Rabbi Frederick L. Klein, Director of The Jewish Chaplaincy Program and Chair of the Conference.
Registration for the conference is $25 and includes lunch. For more information, or to find out about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Alicia Schindler at 954.253.2830 or email@example.com.
