Silver Screen Studios
Silver Screen Studios celebrates the lives and experiences of inspiring seniors through short form digital series and other media. From the legends we love to the everyday Silver Screen stars in our own lives, the platform tells the stories of those living well into their later years to show all of us how to live life fully and to be role models for a great last act of our lives.
From legendary seniors like Screenwriter Norman Lear, Actress Marion Ross, and Senator Carl Levin, Silver Screen presents a series of documentary shorts, to inspire audiences – to live a meaningful last act of our lives – with creativity, wisdom, wit, and candor. At any age, we can learn about the past directly from the people who lived it, creating space for an intergenerational dialogue that empowers, informs and entertains.

In the second episode of the Silver Screen Studios original series “Sign of the Times” we meet 77-year-old Dr. Sharon Silverman, a Chicago-based educator, who has dedicated her life to advocating for educational equality and access for children worldwide. Dr. Silverman offers insights and wisdom (needed even more now) on how to teach students who struggle. As a life-long learner, Dr. Silverman also inspires us to lead with curiosity, and adventure and to never stop learning no matter how old you are.
In honor of the triumph of Coda at the Oscars and the powerful speech of Troy Kotsur, only the second deaf Oscar winner ever, we wanted to highlight our special star of the Deaf community, Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer (May 1, 1945 – February 3, 2022), president of Hebrew Seminary & Senior Rabbi of Congregation Bene Shalom in Skokie, IL. We were privileged to speak to him last fall for our new series from Reboot and Silver Screens, “Sign of the Times.” He dedicated his life and spiritual teachings to advocating for the Deaf community and honoring diversity, equity and inclusion in the Jewish Faith.
