Members of the Renaissance Group are active adults who take pleasure in coming together at least once a month to enjoy timely speakers, music, trips, films, dine-a-rounds, camaraderie, and simply celebrating life. The Group has been on going continuously since it’s founding in 1989.  Membership is open to both Temple B’nai Or members and the community at large.  All events are open to the community.  Please join us.

2017 is shaping up to be a great year for Renaissance, and we plan to continue the fun throughout the fall:
