Rabbi Laura Geller, Rabbi Emerita of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, was named by PBS Next Avenue as one of the fifty 2017 “Influencers in Aging.” The baby boomer generation transformed society in the 60s and 70s and changed the way the world saw young people. While this generation is no longer young, it is still revolutionary and is now confronting and challenging assumptions about aging by living longer, by being more active than their parents and grandparents, and by simply doing things differently as they age. In the process, boomers are changing the way the world sees older people.
