When the Nazis came to Vienna, sixteen-year-old Zalman fled to France, where he was interred in a camp for a year.

I am searching for a book to be used for our women's discussion group which meets monthly in our 55 ad over community. We just finished The Gift Of Years, Growing Older Gracefully by Joan Chittister. Our group is made up of spiritual women of various faiths. Joan's book was great because though she is Christian her book spoke to all of us. From Aging To Saging rang true to me from the moment I read the title. I certainly think this book might touch some raw nerves which all seniors have developed over the years but it also offers a path to healing and dealing. I was thankful for that. I am still not sure that this book will be our selection as it delves into the area of death. Our group is not led by a professional so talking about death might be more than we could handle. Several of our neighbors have died recently. Having said that I myself have gained a great deal from this book. In fact it has been life changing. Rabbi gives voice to so much of what I have been thinking over the last few years. I am grateful for this book and only wish that his Institute was still viable as I would gladly travel to attend one of his workshops....Thank you Rabbi

I would give it more if the stars were there This book came out a little ahead of the conscious ageing boom and it is a welcome tome, so comprehensive to where the reality of our western civilisation lies. It is a must read for anyone, especially over 50's (really!) as that's when one can be naturally ready for a surge in life for transition, completing unattended visions and accomplishments because your experiences have taken you there. And it's timely to seriously look at yourself and get excited about choosing to be healthy to support this specific phase of consciously leading a long, meaningful and fulfilling life. Yes, because it address the rightful and appropriate place in our culture for the honer position of taking up the lacuna in today's communities - that of a sage. Positive results will benefit from reestablishing the value of elders, renewing what indigenous cultures have always known about the lost art of wisdom keeping. It also leads to experiments in renewing independent transitional ways of living by stepping away from mass markets where we can and do lose our identity in looking outside ourselves for self worth. As the culture is moving technically faster than humans can digest, we naturally gravitate to the past of least resistance with distractions to push away our anxieties about not keeping up, causing detachment, depression and reaching for pharmaceuticals, botox and all the inappropriate and unnatural panaceas to keep the stress (and natural process of ageing) at bay. Rabbi's insights as a leader in spiritual renewal makes this ageing process an exciting prospect as we know we are on a one-way journey, so it must be phenomenal, (how could it not be?) It's a time to grasp this idea and pay attention to how we are feeling (the body knows) focisong on our own wisdom and insight, and learning to trust ourselves. This is not an easy one-off read as it is a practical guide to begin the work of a serious turn around in habits that actually do not serve us as we take up these miles in our trek into wholeness and wholehearted living. A book for all ages and genders!.

Awesome and much needed book. Provides us baby boomers with a new concept of growing older and what to do in our next phase of life. I think more people should read this book, as it discusses a much more healthy way to view getting older...of giving back and becoming more involved with sharing our life long knowledge as sages.

This is THE profound book about how to make the last third of one's life vital, vibrant and meaningful. It is easy to read and so encouraging to those who despair about growing older. This book provides a precious map to growing wiser and more alive rather than becoming a burden as we go into the final chapters of our life. This book, when I read it in 1997 changed my orientation to aging. While the author finally died this year after an extraordinary final score of years in his life, his work lives on in this seminal treatise. This is the one book that you will not regret having and reading. It will change the rest of your life.

Our Unitarian/Universalist congregation has a program for early retirees which involved a volunteer instructor/leader and this book. I found it informative and it focused me, along with the discussions our group had around each chapter, on issues I had not fully confronted or appreciated in some cases. Definitely worth the read for me. I have found myself going back to it on occasion, something I rarely do with a book.

I really liked the first half to ⅔ of this book, but found the last chapters a little too "utopian". I loved the way Reb Zalman wrote about the need for us to use our senior years as a time of growth into spiritual maturity. I especially resonated with his image of "harvesting life". This book will be an important part of my library -- one that I will return to again and again.
I ran across this delightful book at a perfect time in my life journey. I am almost through reading the text. The book also came with a workbook that I plan to utilize later this fall when I complete another project that I have been working on.
