Taking Hold – Creative Planning for Retirement and Beyond

May 11th,2017 Categories: Latest News

An interfaith adult education program sponsored by the Episcopal Church Foundation and organized by Rabbi Leonard Schoolman


Every day, ten thousand Americans turn sixty-five. And very, very few of us have any understanding of the new challenges that will affect our lives. For many, shifts and reduction in income are the first shocks of a new reality. Social Security and Medicare and new and different insurance policies require a sea change in our thinking. Changes in our health require new ways of dealing with our bodies, our minds and our assets. Different challenges and opportunities will confront us every day, yet nothing has prepared us for these massive changes in our lives.

Come join a diverse gathering of individuals and experts from various faith traditions, ages and backgrounds as an inter-faith collaboration of congregations seeks to answer common questions and begin to give you directions for your next steps in this exciting new stage of our lives.
Join us at:

St. Ignatius Loyola Church, Wallace Hall
980 Park Avenue, New York City (between 83rd and 84thStreets)

Three Tuesday evenings 7pm-9pm
May 16: Social Security, Medicare & You
May 23: Living fully in Retirement and estate planning
May 30: Ensuring your wishes are fulfilled and planning for the end of life
