ADULT SOCIAL GROUPS

  

Our groups:

Kesher (Formerly called the Empty Nesters) 

Kesher offers mature adults, many of whom have free time during daylight hours, the opportunity to socialize with others in the same situation.   We gather to explore a variety of topics, from engaging with guest speakers like Rabbi Stone on Mussar, sharing our recent favorite books, delving into the Jewish film festival, reminiscing about past High Holidays, discussing Medicare supplements, and even enjoying films and reading short plays with Jewish themes. Singles as well as couples are warmly invited. Interested? Contact Carol Benedick.

YAD (Young Adult Division)

YAD provides an opportunity for those in their 20s and 30s to connect with each other at Beth Shalom over Jewish content and learning. Interested? Contact our program coordinator

Food and 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.  Questions? Contact our Program Coordinator, Yana Teush. Food & Friends Registration has closed for this year.  Please check back again in Fall of 2024.
