Formerly called the Empty Nesters, the Kesher group gives mature adults - many of whom have free time during daylight hours - an opportunity to socialize with others in the same situation.  We are in the planning stages of this new group.  A previous incarnation, the Empty Nesters, would meet monthly - usually for a Sunday brunch, dairy pot luck, schmoozing, and to discuss a topic of choice. Topics have included discussing a guest speaker at the shul such as Rabbi Stone talking about Mussar, favorite books recently read, the Jewish film festival, memories of the high holidays, Medicare supplements, and we have also seen films of Jewish interest and read short plays aloud. Singles as well as couples are warmly invited. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Carol Benedick.

YAD - Young Adult Division
This group for young adults in their 20s and 30s, provides religious and social network opportunities for graduate students and young professionals. Many members of our group become active members of our community who attend, and lead, Shabbat morning services. Programs include: film showings, Shabbat dinners, Food and Friends Groups, drinks in Rabbi Borodin’s sukkah, cooking for Shabbas chefs, and more. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact our Community and Membership Engagement Director.

Food & Friends 5784
Join Food and Friends to connect with a small group (8-10 people) of Beth Shalom members during five monthly meetings on Sundays. Share a meal, along with studying a curriculum prepared by Rabbi Rose.  Please click here for more information on this year's Food & Friends.
