Are you a senior congregant? Are you interested in meeting other seniors who are young at heart, always inquisitive, are eager to do new things, and are actively involved in all facets of our Temple life? If so, our senior group is the place for you.
We are a vibrant arm of Temple Emanuel. Our mission and primary emphasis is on service through self-supporting functions.
Our Henry Raich senior board members select programs for our monthly Brown Bag Lunch Meetings. These meetings are diversified, stimulating and of interest to us all. Each October we host a Senior Shabbat Dinner, followed by a Senior Shabbat Service.
Our monthly brown bag luncheons are open to all Temple Emanuel members and to non-members at no charge. Please join us.>
