TRG – The Renaissance Group




TRG - Beth Emeth’s Renaissance Group

Our Congregation, like others across North America, is experiencing growth in members 50 years of age and over. In response, many congregations are creating “Renaissance Groups” to serve members whose lifestyles may be quite different than when they were younger.

We are a diverse group: some are “empty-nesters” whose children are no longer part of religious school or CBEYG, others may be families whose adult children live at home or couples without children. Some of us work full time, some part time, while others are retired. Some of us are active at CBE in various aspects of congregational life, while others are not.

But what links us together is the desire to find new ways to connect with our Temple and to meet others who share similar changing interests.

The Renaissance Group of Congregation Beth Emeth, or TRG for short, was launched in 2015 for those who take pleasure in coming together to explore social, educational and ritual opportunities as well as experience the best of CBE’s existing programs.

TRG activities facilitate new bonds of friendship where we share joy and a new sense of adventure and discovery. We are working to create and nurture meaningful relationships within our Beth Emeth community as well as strengthen our ties to Judaism.

Everyone is welcome to participate. If you would like to be on the email list to receive notice of upcoming TRG events and activities as well as other CBE programs of interest to our group, please send an email to one of us.

If you have any questions, please be in touch. We look forward to hearing from you. Susan Hager Joe Schwartz
