ADVANCED PRAISE FOR The Privilege of Aging

“Give yourself the pleasure to enter into the Council of Twelve…. You will discover regions of courage and awareness that will enrich your life regardless whether you are male or female, young or old.”

Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi
Co-author of From Aging to Saging
ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal


“Patricia Gottlieb Shapiro introduces us to ordinary women who model growth, resiliency, creativity and vibrancy in later life. These women are our guides; they beckon all of us to age fearlessly.”

Rabbi Dayle A. Friedman, M.A., M.S.W., B.C.C.
Author of Jewish Visions for Aging
Director, Growing Older: Wisdom + Spirit Beyond Midlife


“The Privilege of Aging presents the empowering life stories of twelve Jewish women, who courageously assess their advanced years not as a barrier but rather as a unique possibility for continued growth… a valuable guide of how Jewish values, resilience and creativity offer immeasurable resources to forge new late-life paths and to redefine the meaning and dignity of the aged self.”
