"50 is the New 30"
Beth Sholom now has a new social group for members between the ages of 40 and 59: "50 is the New 30." This group's theme is "no sing-a-longs, no sermons, no solicitations, just socializing," and its purpose is to allow this important demographic within our Kehilla to come together in friendship. The steering committee will be planning something exciting each quarter to bring this middle group within our population together and we invite you to join us.
Kathy & Michael Kastan, Hallie & Jay Cohen, Maya & Mark Wank, Laurie & Claudio Feler, Rhonda & Mark Saslawsky, Rachel Markovitz & Brian Shaffer, Shelley Robbins & Reed Landau, Mindy Lipson, Marley & Manny Pailet, Susan & Michael Struminger, Judy & Ron Holzer, and Andrea & Jonathan Scilken.
Progressive Pot Luck Supper
“50 is the New 30” was at it again on Sunday, November 14th when they hosted a Progressive Pot Luck Supper. Everyone gathered for appetizers at the home of Lisa & David Harris and then moved for entrees to Mindy & Harry Diament’s home and finally to Rachel & Anthony Morrison’s for dessert. Along with a dairy or pareve dish, each attendee also brought the recipe for their item to share with the others. In addition to the continued camaraderie of the group, everyone agreed that the food was delicious. Thanks to the Harris, Diament and Morrison families for being our hosts, and to Ron Holzer for compiling a cookbook for all of those who shared recipes.
On Sunday afternoon, August 23rd, Elaine & Maury Radin hosted “50 is the New 30” at their Island Getaway home. A large crowd enjoyed Reggae music mingled with a little Jimmy Buffet and delicious Caribbean Food supplied by Holy Cow Catering! While munching on chips with mango salsa and jerk chicken and spiced rice, this Beth Sholom chaverah enjoyed socializing with friends at this end of summer soiree. The weather was beautiful and people spread through the Radin home and outside on their patio to visit with each other, tell stories of summer vacations and commiserate that the school year has begun! Thanks to the Radins for hosting and to committee chairs, Kathy Kastan, Hallie Cohen and Shelley Robbins for planning yet another great event!
Summer Vacation Get-Together
On Sunday, June 7th, after getting our kids settled at camp, internships, travel abroad and new jobs, members of “50 is the New 30” took time to kick back and enjoy summer. Rhonda and Mark Saslawsky opened their home for summer salads, fish tacos, desserts, drinks and socializing. Beth Sholom members enjoyed relaxing by the pool and catching up with each other. Everyone is looking forward to this group’s next event!
Wine and Scotch Tasting
The inaugural event for "50 is the New 30" was a scotch and wine tasting held at the home of Maya & Mark Wank on Saturday evening, March 28th. Wines and spirits from Forest Hill Wine Merchants with tasting insights by owner, Latham Oates were featured, as well as delicious appetizers. In addition, we featured Passover wines from award winning producers, available for purchase and in time for everyone's seder. Those joining the festivities were encouraged to bring their own glass and to express their creativity.
