Empty Nesters

Co-chairs: Barbara Silverman and Sharron Botwinick

Many people initially come to synagogue life to provide their children with a Jewish education or to prepare them for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  When children grow-up and leave the home many adults find themselves re-examining the role that a synagogue can play in their lives. Temple Sinai sees Judaism as a life-long journey with depth and riches to offer across the entire life-span and this stage in life is no exception.

The Temple Sinai Empty Nesters was created to experience the warmth of belonging to an extended family and to celebrate Jewish life within a large community. To enable parents whose children have grown and left home to share ideas and experiences with other adults in this same situation, and to enjoy this stage of life to the fullest!

Our Empty Nesters group is responsible for developing, arranging, conducting and coordinating social programs, events and meetings for empty nesters. Some of the activities we do are: Game Nights, Dinners, group participation in Temple Sinai’s social events and our annual Shabbaton: a special weekend were we bond, we learn and pray together in a relaxed and informal destination. 

We want to hear from you. If there are ways that we can help you to feel more connected to Temple Sinai or ways that we can better serve you then please contact the Empty Nesters chairs or Susan Warech, our Director of Congregational Engagement  and Administration, at 305.932.9010.
