The Orthodox Union will bring its SPIRIT Initiative (Stimulating Program Initiative for Retirees that Inspires Thought) to Anshei Chesed Congregation in Boynton Beach from Tuesday, February 4 through Thursday, February 6. The SPIRIT Program is a three-day series featuring leading rabbinic, communal and mental health professionals, focused on enhancing the educational opportunities of the Jewish community.

OU member Anshei Chesed Congregation and STAJE, a communal organization seeking to help make the retirement-age years meaningful for American Jews, will cosponsor the event. The program will be held in the synagogue, 10683 El Clair Ranch Road in Boynton Beach, Florida.

Registration is suggested at www.oucommunity.org or by calling 212-613-8300. Walk-ins are welcome. The program, open to men and women, will begin with registration at 10 a.m. followed by the lectures and lunch from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The fee of $20 for all three sessions or $10 per day includes both the lectures and lunch.

Each day’s programs will include two sessions, one on Jewish learning and the other on aspects of retirement. Among the expert presenters will be Rabbi Avi Billet, mora d’asrah of Anshei Chesed Congregation.
