About Us

Kol HaKavod News is an outreach in a new direction in Jewish periodicals taking into account the changing demographics of the society at large and the particular needs of our community. Today’s 50+ adult population faces opportunities and challenges that in some ways are very different from those of their parents. Statistics show that they tend to be more active and healthier, to have more discretionary income, to work longer, and to be more aware of and engaged in a wider world. They also have higher levels of stress and, more than ever, tend to be part of the “sandwich generation,” balancing the needs of their children, their parents – and themselves.

For Orthodox Jews, some very real additional challenges arise from our commitment to balancing Torah values with the realities and possibilities of the 21st Century. Kol HaKavod News is designed to help respond to those realities and serve as a valuable resource for the Torah observant, with a particular appreciation for the significance of fulfilling the Mitzvah of Kibud Av V’Eim, honoring one’s parents.

The Publisher, Rabbi Reuven Becker, author, lecturer and educator, is a veteran caregiver whose background is in organizational development, management, and quality assurance in service delivery. He has written numerous articles in local and national journals and newspapers including The Gerontologist, as well as two books on elder care.  At the 2009 National Public Health Conference he was selected to lead a round table discussion on the topic of Health Promotion Interventions for Family Care Givers.

Rabbi Becker founded the landmark L’Orech Yomim “Caring for Our Elders” community seminar series in 1999 to bring state of the art information directly to the Orthodox Jewish consumer (lorechyomim.org). Targeted to the 50+ age group, the programs have a standing-room-only attendance with active government, business, consumer and social service agency participation.This model integrates professional and rabbinic expertise to educate and inform consumers, has been replicated throughout the country and today remains the standard among the major Jewish communal organizations.  Kol HaKavod News is a forum to share this scope of knowledge with greater audiences.

Supplemented by the contribution of experienced professionals such as book editor S. Malkah Cohen and psychologist Yitzhak Berger, PhD, Kol HaKavod News promises to be, as its name suggests, an important voice for active adults in our community and their families.
