Americans are living - and enjoying life - longer than ever, a demographic trend that creates many challenges and opportunities for synagogues. To Honor and Respect is designed to help congregations respond to the longevity of revolution by helping older Jewish adults see their synagogues not just as places for life-cycle events but as sacred communities of meaning. A culmination of the sacred aging project of the URJ Department of Family Concerns, To Honor and Respect presents original rituals to mark the milestones of aging, suggests legacy and spiritual autobiography projects to hieghten community inclusiveness, examines the impact of medical technology, and provides practical and spiritual resources for caregivers. The book is a crucial guide for individuals and congregations working with aging - but still vibrant - populations.
