Home Community Renaissance

We’re the Renaissance Group, an active, adventurous, fun-loving group of Temple Shalom members who are 50-or-more years old.  We’re a youthful “seniors” group, delighted to be free at this stage in our lives to play, to explore, to learn, to socialize, to establish new friendships.  Some of us are retired; others work full time.  Many of our members are active in various Temple Shalom committees (Sisterhood, Brotherhood, etc.); others are not.

Under the creative leadership of Shirley Bauer we schedule about a dozen events for the season (August -June).  These include an exceptional range of outings - entertaining, educational, exhilarating.

Variety is the spice of our agenda.  We’ve enjoyed such wide ranging activities as:
•        A boat ride up the Hudson River to the Rockefeller estate (box lunches included)
•        The Jewish Museum in Manhattan, Grounds for Sculpture in NJ
•        Dinner and a show
•        Weekend trips to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Philadelphia and this years overnight to Rhinebeck for the famous antique airshow
•        Botanical Gardens and Zoo in New York
•        Waterloo Village
•        Pontoon boating on the Hackensack river
•        Dinner and Havdallah services at members’ homes
Many, many, many more activities are planned.

Do you have some evenings and Sundays free?  Feel like a little adventure?  Want to get to know some more people you have plenty in common with? Do you crave a warm and hearty social environment?  Consider joining the Renaissance Group.  We’d be happy to welcome you.
