We’ll all bring some snacks to share and follow-up the movie with questions, reactions brilliant insights.


POETRY GROUP:

Email Jessica Gidal or Jessica de Koninck

Any BK-nik who feels 2% better after reading poetry aloud (or hearing it read aloud) should join us. Bring a poem to share (á la BK Poetry Slam), or just tune in to listen, discuss, and let us know what might interest you. Details about the Zoom meeting, poetry resources, etc. can be found here. Feel free to post your poem ahead of time in the document.


THE RENAISSANCE GROUP:

Email the Renaissance Group to get involved.

The Renaissance Group provides opportunities for members (60+ years old) to form new and vibrant relationships (or revive former ones) at Bnai Keshet.  Periodic gatherings offer a welcoming place for us to mix and mingle in a warm, informal way.  We are always adding new activities and venues for increased engagement. Your ideas are encouraged. Email for more information. 


TAKE A HIKE:

Email Betsy Tessler

Grab your hiking boots or any sturdy pair of shoes and head on out to the great outdoors with members and friends of the BK community. Hiking is good for the body and soul, especially during these (pick your adjective) times when many of us are glued to our news feeds or TVs. Take a break from the news, technology, and your daily stresses, and come with us to explore some beautiful spots in New Jersey and beyond. We have been averaging one hike per month on a Sunday and are doing our best to vary the challenge level and length of the hikes. All hikes are within one hour’s drive of Bnai Keshet and are usually more like half an hour’s drive. Please look for our Facebook group and ask to join (you can search “Take a Hike!”), and then post your favorite hike (if you have one), as we are always looking to expand our repertoire. If you’re not on Facebook, contact Betsy and ask to be added to the email list. Look forward to hiking with you!
