Retirement

Many of us identify strongly with our work, making retirement a major life passage. We are not sure who we will be without our work to define us. We wonder how our time will pass when it follows a different rhythm. When we connect the transition to retirement with enduring Jewish themes and symbols, we find grounding for this new stage of life.
