The Last Act is a collaborative project of Reboot, a nonprofit organization that explores what it means to live an inspired Jewish life in the modern age, and partners Steve Goldbloom and Tiffany Woolf. Steve is the creator of the “Brief But Spectacular” series and “Everything But the News,” both on PBS. Tiffany has more than 20 years of publicity experience in entertainment and documentary film. The Last Act is a passion project for Tiffany, who lost both parents at a young age and now looks to other bubbes and zaydes to show her -- and all of us -- how to live life fully and to be role models for a great last act of our lives.
The Last Act series explores aging through a Jewish lens by including interviews with rabbis and scholars about what the Torah says about living long with spirituality. You know that Abraham, Noah, and Moses didn’t kick back and retire at 65, right? They embarked on their greatest adventures. If you read the Old Testament literally, Abraham was 75 when he got the call from G-d to journey to Canaan, where he fathered children and lived to be 175. Noah may have been 480 when G-d asked him to build an ark!
Tiffany Woolf has more than 20 years of publicity experience in entertainment, film, music, arts & lifestyle, and public interest communications. She has directed major campaigns with leading entertainment properties and attractions including Pixar Animation Studios, Dolby Laboratories, Loews Cineplex Entertainment, HBO, Showtime, Current TV, PBS, WNYC, Independent Television Service and IMAX.
