Tufts University European Center on the banks of Lake Annecy, with the foothills of the Alps in the background.
Great opportunity in Talloires!

We are pleased to share the What Happens Next? seminar offered by the Tufts University European Center.

Join Tufts Rabbi Jeffrey Summit and Stanford University's Reverend Scotty McLennan for this intimate and thought-provoking program, where we will consider how best to direct our time and energy to ensure our lives are fulfilling and balanced as we age. How do we come to a deeper appreciation of the pleasures we find meaningful, the causes we consider worthwhile, our relationships, our time? Using literature, philosophy, and spiritual sources, we will explore these issues, and many more.

Situated on the banks of Lake Annecy in the foothills of the French Alps, the Tufts European Center in Talloires is the perfect place to embark on this personal exploration.

You can learn more on the seminar registration page.
