Difficult Times


With aging comes challenges which may limit our choices and activities. These include health challenges, financial difficulties, family estrangements, and the loss of loved ones. The Jewish tradition both acknowledges the pain while urging us to relish the joys available to us. The wisdom acquired in our lives can help us to navigate away from the shoals of despair. As Isabelle Allende said; “We all have an unsuspected reserve of strength inside that emerges when life puts us to the test.”
