Seniors Overview

Meetings & Program Dates


The purpose of the Senior Group is to give seniors and other congregation members and others in the community an opportunity to participate in discussions and to socialize.

The Senior Group usually meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month. We meet in the social hall at the synagogue at 12:00 PM for a lox and bagel lunch followed by a presentation at 12:30 PM. The cost for the luncheon is $7 per person. Notices for the meeting with information about the presentation are sent out about ten days prior to the meeting. To receive information about the meeting contact Mark Turner or call the synagogue office at 630-627-3912.

We usually have speakers to initiate discussion. The speakers are drawn from our community and nearby academic institutions. A few of the topics covered recently include Frank Lloyd Wright, composing music, book reviews, movie reviews, documentaries, etc.

So if you like good food, a bit of intellectual stimulation and schmoozing, please join us.

Note: Lunch is not mandatory. You may bring your own, if you wish.
