Rabbi address conducted a workshop on Baby Boomers at the 2013 Biennial of the Union for Reform Judaism in San Diego last week. The session, “Seekers of Meaning: Baby Boomers and Our Congregations,” discussed how the first wave of “boomers” is now collecting Medicare and Social Security.

What are the issues that impact this generation’s soul and spirit and how can our congregations meet them “where they are”?
