Welcome to The 2018 Survey on Jewish Women, Aging & Spirituality
Did you know that the population of women over 60 has been skyrocketing over the past few decades? Women living longer and in better health are a new force to reckon with!
At Bais Chana we’ve been running retreats that focus on Jewish womanhood and spirituality for over 40 years, so it’s no surprise that more and more mature women are asking us to design something especially for them.
And that got us thinking.
As women move past the busy-ness of childrearing and workdays - what we generally think of as our most productive years - we want to know: what's next?
Our 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s can be a challenging time but also an exhilarating time. Many women grow bolder as they age. Many grow more whole, emotionally and spiritually.
What do you think? How has it been for you?
Your voice, your experience and your insights are important to us.
So grab a cup of coffee, settle into your chair and share some of your wisdom in our survey below! We're going to share what we find out with you so make sure to include your email. And we'll put our findings to good use designing programming for Jewish Women 55-plus.
The last day to submit your survey is Monday, February 26, 2018.
Disclaimer: We understand "Women 55-plus" seems like a contrived age category - but we had to start somewhere.
Ok, let's get started!
