The Changing Landscape: Pathways Ahead

November 27, 2018
5:30 pm – 6 pm: Registration and refreshments

This forum will focus on the growing population of older adults in the Jewish community and the new and emerging programming and service requirements.

To help us explore these issues, we have invited a number of guests:
