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

Gary Y. Holtzman – 954-389-8528 – algari@bellsouth.net
Hi Nesters and Friends.
 
Thank you Empty Nesters, both older and younger, for making this Shabbat dinner the largest in our history, with 91 attendees. Unfortunately, excluding the 3 that were unable to attend at the last minute. The food by Palm Caterers, featuring a double entrée of Chicken Sorrento and Chef Terry’s specialty Meatloaf, was exceptional, and the best part, we were able to donate $820.00 to TDD Youth Programming, making this year’s total $1,000.00 donated to our Youth!
 
Also, it was great having the younger Empty Nesters attend and, hopefully, we can have them join us and, we could plan events geared more to our younger members and we would have more events and better choices. It certainly seems worthwhile to discuss this possibility going forward for 2018/19.
 
The last Empty Nesters event is our closing MEMBERS DINNER, AT TARANTELLA RESTAURANT IN THE TOWN CENTER ON THURSDAY, MAY 3, AT 6:30 PM. This will be a great meal with antipasto, salad, 5 entrée selections, dessert and beverage. Beer. Wine and cocktails are available at a very special price. Chair Elliott Gross and Host John Can, promise an evening of great food, fun and farewell’s for the summer vacations. The cost is $35 per person. Single members are invited to bring a guest and, for this evening, any non-Empty Nesters, who wishes to commit for next year by paying the $25 dues, will be invited to attend this dinner, as well, for the $35 fee. (Come on you younger E.N.’s, you’ll enjoy the meal and the friendships and a new adventure for next year!) Please complete the form(s) below, or call Jill in the Temple office and have your credit card charged.
