United Synagogue's Hazak Program

By Morton Siegel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2006

Hazak (strength) is the organization of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism for senior congregational members, those 55 years of age and older. It is intended to supplement the normative roster of congregational activities in a Conservative congregation with a pattern of study, social functions, recreational activities, and religious experiences specifically geared to the senior. The key word is "supplement" not "parallel" because there is much in overall congregational life that is not attendant upon age determinants. However, each age constituency does have specific needs, and especially so the older adult.
