August 17, 2021 at 11am – Live Klezmer in Shraiberg Gardens

We’ve got a real special treat for our first in-person Senior get together since the beginning of the pandemic.  A Klezmer Journey with the Klez Dispensers, live from Schreiber Gardens.  Go on a musical journey from the 19th century shtetls of eastern Europe to the shores of early 20th century America, and on through the klezmer revival that has been going strong for the past 50 years.  Featuring Ben Cohen on accordion, Annie Aqua on violin & Miriam Rosenblum on clarinet.


August 26, 2021 at 1pm -- Becky O’Brien from Hazon
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow: Eating Across Generations

Our tradition teaches l'dor v'dor, from generation to generation. But it's not always the best practices that make it from one generation to the next. While in some ways food systems have gotten much better, in other ways, they've worsened. Author Jonathan Safran Foer writes, "We don't need to reinvent food but to uninvent it. The future of farming and eating needs to resemble the past." Together, we'll learn about the changes in our food system over the last few generations, how we've experienced its evolution in our own lifetimes, and explore how we can make choices that create a healthier and more sustainable food system and planet for everyone.

October 21, 2021 at 1pm – The Kevin Mathews Band – in person!
A Tribute To The Oscar Peterson Trio

Oscar Peterson, who remains one of the most towering figures in music, changed the art of jazz piano forever with his soulful, virtuosic style rooted in the blues. Perhaps his most well-known band consisted of bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen. This concert will be our humble tribute to these three masters and their iconic album, “We Get Requests.”

Virtual Minyan and Yahrzeit Ceremony

Please click above to join

SPECIAL CEREMONY FOR A YAHRZEIT AND FOR THOSE IN MOURNING We value the memory of our loved ones and want to respect the tradition of saying Kaddish for them. When one is unable to recite the Kaddish in memory of a loved one due to exigent circumstances, our tradition has allowed for other, equally potent, ways to pay our respects. It is traditional to learn Mishna in honor of the soul of the one being remembered. Notice that the word Mishna משנה contains the same letters as נשמה, the soul. Learning Mishna is powerful. On Sunday through Friday evenings, as part of our ZOOM MINYAN online, you can hear me read the names of those being remembered on their yahrzeit followed by my teaching a Mishna in their memory. We will conclude with a special version of Kaddish that can be recited even without a full minyan present.
