Rabbi George Stern, elected to the NAIN Board in 2008, is currently working with older adults in Center City Philadelphia in a pilot program aimed at helping them create an “intentional community” through which they can support one another and contribute to their remaining in their preferred homes for as long as possible. From 2002-2011 he served as Executive Director of the Neighborhood Interfaith Movement in Philadelphia.  Prior to that he was a congregational rabbi in Upper Nyack, NY, for 27 years and served as Adjunct Professor at St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkill, NY. He currently serves as  President of My Way, a nonprofit that is developing affordable services for older adults struggling to maintain independent lives at home. He and his wife, the Library Director of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (Wyncote, PA), are members of both the Germantown Jewish Centre (Conservative) and Congregation Rodeph Shalom (Reform), where he grew up.
