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.

NEWS FROM EMPTY NESTERS

Mid-November 2017 Update 

Gary Y. Holtzman – 954-389-8528 – algari@bellsouth.net

Hi Nesters & Friends,

Planning for December, below are several near and dear events (but not limited) to our Empty Nesters:
 
ISRAEL SOLIDARITY – BRUNCH & LEARN – SUNDAY, December 3, 2017 AT 11:30 AM
The first ISC program will feature our special guest, Leah Soibel, the founder and CEO of Fuente Latina, the No. 1 Source for Global Spanish Language and Latino Media Covering Israel with the intent to curb anti-Semitic and anti-Israel propaganda. Leah will be traveling from Jerusalem to speak with us. As always, these programs free to our community, as they are funded by generous sponsors, but we always welcome additional contributions. An RSVP to Lorelei & Robert Ennis at akidsbook@aol.com is a must. 
 
CHANUKAH BRUNCH AND GIFT EXCHANGE – THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14 AT 11:00 AM
This special Empty Nesters Chanukah event is chaired by Lenore Rosa who, working with Palm Caterers, promises a delicious Brunch. After Brunch, we will hold an exciting Chanukah Gift Exchange Auction. Although, this is optional, I am certain you will wish to participate. For each person, or couple, wishing to take part in the gift exchange, you must bring a new wrapped gift of $20 value (no gift cards or certificates) and be ready for unexpected fun in the select and/or exchange auction process. This do-not-miss event is $15 per person for the Brunch plus the gift, only if you wish to join in the fun! Please RSVP with the reservation form below.
 
TDD’s ANNUAL FAMILY FUN DAY BBQ – MONDAY, DECEMBER 25 AT 11:00 AM
The Empty Nesters co-sponsor this event with all other Temple Auxiliaries. The fun begins with a delicious BBQ, which will feature hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings, sports, games, etc. Please RSVP to TDD 954-389-1232, or info@templedordorim.org. Please note, seating is limited, so please bring a folding chair; as is parking, with overflow parking at Weston Commons. This is a relaxing three hours of eating and sitting around talking about world events, as well as, about those who are not in attendance!
 
December is a jammed packed month of events for all ages. Check the December Bulletin when it is mailed at the end of November for many more opportunities for religious, social, cultural and educational happenings at Synagogue. FYI, sorry, our January ShowTime (Capitol Steps) and dinner is a complete sell-out of all 50 tickets and we cannot take additional reservations.
 
Alice joins me in wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving with family and friends.
 
Shalom,
Gary
