Dor LeDor, in existence for over twenty years (previously known as Road Scholars and Not for Seniors Only) offers a variety of cultural experiences for adult members of our community. These have included:
•Visits to major current art exhibitions. Sheryl Urman, our "resident" art educator, presents an in depth slide art lecture, which is always preceded with brunch, and followed by a bus trip to the museum or gallery. Recent trips have included the Whitney Museum, Picasso at MOMA, Frida Kahlo at the New York Botanical Gardens, etc.
•Lunch and Learn with Rabbis Goldin and/or Poupko. Held before each of the holidays, these well attended events, provide an opportunity to socialize and to gain new insights into the meaning and practices of the chag, be it Chanukah, Purim, Pesach or Rosh Hashanah. The afternoon is often enhanced with a musical performance.
•Outstanding movies that are especially relevant to our participants. Woman in Gold was preceded by a lunch and a discussion of the life of the artist, Gustav Klimt. Paper Clips was shown at the Moriah School as an intergenerational event, with discussion of the film by the director, community members who are survivors and the Moriah junior high students.
•Presentations by historians and other experts. An illustrated discussion of synagogues around the world was especially meaningful to many as they had experienced davening in some of these historic buildings.
•Excursions to museums such as the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Trips always include transportation, lunch, docent or electronic guides, and admission.
Watch the weekly calendar, email and electronic bulletin board for announcements of upcoming events. Participation is not limited to synagogue members and in fact many people from outside the immediate Englewood community are enthusiastic participants. Please feel free to contact any of the committee members or the synagogue office for more information or with suggestions for future events.
