Staying Connected at Temple Aliyah

Staying Connected is Temple Aliyah's social group for those who are 55+. We sponsor activities throughout the year that focus on maintaining our connection to Temple Aliyah as well as welcoming new Temple members in our age cohort. Some of our events include a Rosh Hashanah Wine & Cheese gathering; attending Boston-area theater and comedy productions; Temple Aliyah showings of Israeli-themed movies in collaboration with Israel Kesher; hosting our ‘Staying Connected Shabbat; organizing a SC Fun night; and sharing Shabbat together at our SC Shabbat Dinner.

Staying Connected also co-sponsors TA programs that focus on the 55+ cohort such as promoting Havurot, The Conversation Project and end of life information sessions, and The Wise Aging Project. Whether you’re a long-time Temple member or brand new to our community, we look forward to meeting you! We welcome new ideas and participation, and look forward to staying connected with you at Temple Aliyah!

For more information, watch for Staying Connected announcements in TA’s Coming Up e-newsletter, or contact our committee co-chairs, Harvey Greenberg or Helene Greenberg.

Those who attended Staying Connected’s October Square Dance danced the night away and burned up quite a few calories while having a lot of fun. Be sure to watch Coming Up for announcements about upcoming Staying Connected/Kesher Committee Sunday night movies and schmoozing on 12/11, 2/19 and 4/2. They’re a great way to spend an evening with old and new friends.
