The Orthodox Union will be presenting the SPIRIT Initiative – Stimulating Program Initiative for Retirees that Inspire Thought – to Congregation Torah Ohr in Boca Raton on Tuesday, February 18 and Thursday, February 20. The SPIRIT program is a two-day series featuring leading rabbinic, communal and mental health professionals, focused on enhancing educational opportunities in the Jewish community.
