Empty Nesters

 

YOUNG AT HEART

Our mission is to provide an environment for social, cultural and religious activities geared to interact, exchange and share experiences, as well as, nurture friendships, common to the maturity of the group’s members and enhance a more meaningful Jewish experience.

The “Empty Nesters” is a mature group of individuals and couples, who are Temple members and at least age fifty-five. Annually, we sponsor the Temple’s Tu B’Shevat Seder, conduct an Empty Nesters’ Shabbat Service and schedule up to three additional club social functions. Additionally, we support Temple and community cultural and fundraising activities.
