FreeBirds

If you’re at a stage of life where you are feeling “free as a bird,” with more time to engage with peers and explore your interests, come join us! Offering a variety of monthly activities, ranging from game nights to trips to Europe, the Free Bird community offers members a fun and active way to create connection with each other, our clergy, and Judaism.

Winter Film Series and Discussion with Rabbi Blake 

Join Rabbi Blake for Afternoons at the Movies and Conversation, as we continue to explore the American Jewish Experience in film! We will warm up the chilly days of winter with good movies, a little wine and snacks, some laughs and interesting discussion. 

Together, we will watch and discuss three landmark films that comment on the American Jewish experience with wisdom and wit.  

Please join us for any one or all three films. Registration is separate for each film.

Sunday, January 7, 2:00 -5:00 pm: Crossing Delancy (1988)
A contemporary New York comedy about Isabella, a single independent woman who is caught in a romantic quandary when her grandmother hires a Jewish matchmaker to find her a husband.
