Elton and Janet Lipnick, David Lipnick, and Myles and Amy Kelman underwrite Shabbat Dinners in memory of Paul Lipnick, an active senior participant, so that other active adults can enjoy the traditional meal and meaningful service to usher in Shabbat. Paul Lipnick enjoyed dining with friends, and his family has chosen this special way to honor his memory.
Great Books Discussion Group
Great Books discussion groups are forums for thoughtful readers. Discussions are lively, friendly, sometimes contentious - and a good deal of fun. The object of a Great Books discussion is not to go home with the "right answer." Participants challenge their own and others’ beliefs and opinions in the light of a rich, thought-provoking text. The group will be meeting on the third Tuesday of every month at 10:00 AM beginning in June.
