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.

Hi Nesters & Friends,

To the fabulous-fifty that attended our wonderful Kickoff Social, thank you for a magnificent Kickoff Social on Sunday. (Attached, is our group photo) It was a terrific evening with delicious food, featuring Margit Mandel’s famous chopped liver and Chef Terry’s specialty meatloaf. Larry ‘Pianoman Brendler, performed at his best all evening, including his outstanding American Singer/Songwriter 40 minute show. This was his eighth and, some feel, his best show ever.
As we enter November, I wish to call to your attention our next event on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 4:00 pm in the Temple. It is not only for the Empty Nesters, .but for our TDD Congregation and our Weston Community. Yes, the Empty Nesters are the Sponsors for this twoish hour music and food bonanza. The event is entitled I LOVE NEW YORK We begin at 4 pm with the well known Chai Notes Klezmer Band playing music, juggling, doing magic, etc. They perform for the audience of all ages to enjoy. We will all sing, dance and clap for a solid hour.

As this is a fund raising event for the Temple, sponsored by your Empty Nesters, it is our responsibility to underwrite the costs for the event. To this end, we are asking those Nesters who can afford  to donate as “Big Apple $100 Sponsors,” to please contact me ASAP to add your name to our growing list, which include your Officers, Gary, Elaine, Arthur and Lenore.  A complete sponsor board will be displayed the evening of the concert. This is our event, please support it!
With thanks,
Gary
Ps: As I had stated would occur from the outset, the 50 tickets for Capitol Steps are a complete sell-out! Also, 42 will be enjoying dinner at Gigi’s Café in Century Village, as well. Tickets to be distributed in December.
