The Jewish Aging Mastery Program teaches seniors small steps to embracing aging & longevity.
Last year, 77-year-old Sheldon Weinberg and his 24 classmates became the first graduates of North America’s Jewish Aging Mastery Program. The diplomas these students received at their graduation ceremony on December 14th aren’t technically accredited by an institution of higher learning, and they didn’t cost thousands of dollars in tuition. Instead, they are a reminder that life is what you make it, and education doesn’t have an age limit.
“This class is filled a lot of holes for me and gave me a new perspective on aging,” Sheldon said.
Life expectancy has increased dramatically over the last fifty years for our countries 76 million baby boomers, but societal expectancies of old age have hardly changed since the ’50z. The JAMP class was designed to give people ages 50-100 a fun, people-centered approach to embracing the gift of longevity, and all of the information they need to create their own plan for ‘mastering’ aging.
