HAZAK Senior Program

HAZAK is the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism’s Organization for Mature Jews. In addition to meaning strength, the name HAZAK is an acronym. The het stands for Hokhmah (wisdom), the zayan for Ziknah (maturity) and the kuph for Kadima (looking ahead). So HAZAK notes that the senior represents cumulative knowledge, the ability to judge as zakeyn in a mature fashion, and has aspirations to move ahead during the decades remaining.

Seniors are the most rapidly growing segment of the Jewish population. HAZAK compliments congregational adult education programs with specially designed social, spiritual, physical, and educational components for them. These opportunities help develop a sense of community through a variety of creative programs. HAZAK affirms the traditional Jewish view that mature adults should have the opportunity to continue to learn and be active in their congregations, their communities and among themselves.

B’nai Torah’s HAZAK group meets on Mondays, and features social action initiatives, movement activities, lectures & workshops, as well as social & spiritual programming.
