The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan Presents: The 6th Annual Symposium on Positive Aging
The 6th Annual Symposium on Positive Aging: Friendship, Connection, and Community is the signature event of the JCC’s Wechsler Center for Modern Aging. The symposium will begin with an in-person conversation between Rabbi Joy Levitt, CEO of the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Anna Quindlen. Quintessential modern agers, Anna and Joy will reflect on their decades-long relationship and discuss the unique ways in which friendships become more critical as we age.
The afternoon session (all virtual) will include an array of thought-provoking workshops designed to educate and inspire, focusing on the theme of friendships and connections through shared interests and experiences. Attendees will select one workshop from a variety of offerings. Topics include Exploring Friendships Through Theater, Empathy & Support on Your Health Journey, The Life I Want to Live As I Age, Impactful Volunteering, The Evolving Nature of Friendship, and more. Optional small group breakout sessions will create opportunities for conversations and connections over lunch, and a movement session will be incorporated into the day.
