Of the more than 75 million Boomers in this country, almost 1.4 million are Jewish. There's no doubt that these Boomers will have tremendous healthcare and social-service needs. Yet, they also offer a wealth of skills, experience and passion which, if effectively harnessed, could transform their communities, their own lives and the Jewish world. Boomers have experience to spare and a desire to leave a social legacy. They also bring a complex mix of goals that defy traditional visions of retirement - including volunteerism, leisure, travel, family and work. What does this mean for Jewish organizations, Jewish communities and, ultimately, these older adults themselves? The age wave isn't a "silver tsunami" waiting to drown us in social-service demands; rather, it's an opportunity to engage this tremendous pool of talent in Jewish life in new ways. To do so effectively, we as organizational leaders must be as different in our approaches to engaging older adults as the Boomer generation is in its view of retirement.
