Anticipating the Consequences of Aging: A Pilot Program in Adult Education
There is a dearth of retirement planning programs created under Jewish auspices for Jewish groups. Such a program was instituted by and for the Jewish community of Pittsburgh. The program was instituted to deal with problems carried over from middle age, or that developed in, or as a result of, retirement. The United Jewish Federation, in coordination with B'nai B'rith, built a program together that emphasized that retirement could be a rewarding period of life, presenting principles that could be adapted by individuals to the problems that arose in their lives. The program focused specifically on men, and encouraged early planning. Topics covered included investments, estate planning, physical health, mental health, social relationships, and religion and tradition.
