The St. Louis Jewish Light has planned its Fifth Annual Primetime Expo: Better Living for Baby Boomers and Seniors, taking place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (exhibiting fair doors open at noon) Sunday, Oct. 25 at the Jewish Community Center Staenberg Family Complex, 2 Millstone Campus Dr. The event is free and open to the public.  

Special events abound as part of Primetime:


At 11 a.m. in the JCC’s Arts & Education Center, there will be a special edition of the Light’s Can We Talk? series, in conjunction with the JCC and Jewish Community Relations Council. “The New Generation Gap” will examine how our Jewish community focuses on issues affecting seniors at different stages of their lives. 

After the exhibitor fair opens at noon, noted author Alan Spector will give a presentation at 12:30 p.m. about how volunteering can play a significant role in retirement. Spector will also be on hand at the Volunteer Fair to address questions and sign copies of his book. Spector is co-author of “Your Retirement Quest: 10 Secrets for Creating and Living a Fulfilling Retirement.”
