Beth El has joined a growing temple movement throughout North America focusing on people over the age of 50 who are also "empty nesters" or "nearly empty nesters"—whether married or single, employed or retired.
The Renaissance Group focuses on social activities designed for individuals with an active lifestyle. While the cost of events will be shared by those participating, we will ask those wishing to affiliate with the Beth El Renaissance Group to pay a one-time $10 per person membership fee. This provides "seed money" for events.
Beth El members who affiliate with the group are invited to suggest and help coordinate the events.
Membership in the Renaissance Group is limited to Beth El members. However, guests or partners of single members are always welcome.
If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, please call or email Linda or Larry Vogel (703) 242-1880 or any other member of the Renaissance Group Steering Committee. (below: Renaissance Group members at Montpelier, 2010)
Jo Ann Allen, Regina Begliutti, Susan and Don Davis, Ben Finkelstein, Ruth Folkman, Meryl Goldhammer, Rhoda and Lennie Goldman, Judy and John Jankowski, and Linda and Larry Vogel.
