Older Members

Reform congregations throughout North America are facing the challenge of a changing congregational demographic. Never before has our membership included such a large proportion over the age of 50. How do we retain these older members once their children no longer bind them to temple life? Vibrant synagogues are learning more and more how to capture the interests and tap the energy of this growing segment of their membership.
