Aging Alone Wasn’t What I Had In Mind

A Panel Discussion on Being  Single in a World Often Coupled

Launching the new Star of David Program at Congregation Har HaShem, we invite seniors and adults of all ages to discuss what it means to find yourself single as you age, whether after being part of a couple due to divorce or the death of a partner or spouse, or having been single all along. Even when anticipated – or planned in the case of a divorce after years of marriage – many people find themselves “suddenly single.”

Join us on Sunday, August 12th from 3-4:30 pm for Aging Alone Wasn’t What I Had In Mind: A Panel Discussion on Being Single in a World often Coupled in the Congregation Har HaShem Social Hall, 3950 Baseline Road in Boulder.

We will address the needs of single elders including answering questions such as what are the new dynamics for a single person in a world often coupled? Is being alone the same as being lonely? How do you negotiate social settings that seem to be meant for two? What are the different approaches to finding new relationships that work? What blessings and new insights can be learned along the way?

Join us for an afternoon program featuring a panel of experts and novices including Arthur Okner, Mark Read, Roberta Reinfeld, and Joanne Eaton who will share their experience and wisdom. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. This program is open to everyone. There is a $3 suggested donation at the door.

The new Star of David Program at Har HaShem will provide programs and activities of special interest for seniors and for adults of all ages. For more information, contact Roberta Reinfeld at (303) 818-9273 or robertadiane@qwest.net.
