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.

2018 is shaping up to be a great year for Renaissance, and we plan to continue the fun throughout the winter and into 2019:

Sunday, December 16, 1:30 PM – Luncheon
A special luncheon will be followed by a Cantorial Concert starting at 3:00 PM.  The concert will feature TBO’s own Cantor Galit, accompanied by Mark Hyczko.  A varied program will include guest artists joining Galit in musical selections from classical, contemporary, Jewish and Broadway genres.  Luncheon requies a fee: Renaissance members $15.00, guests $20.00.  Concert is provided by a generous donation made to TBO at the fund-raising Gala held last spring.

Tuesday, January 1, 2:00 PM – Lunch
Join us as we once again go to the Hunan Chinese Room 255 Speedwell Ave, Morris Plains, NJ 07950, for our traditional New Years Day Festival meal. Price will be $29 per person, including tip, the same as last year, for lots of excellent food. If you need to cancel for any reason, we must have that information by December 29.

Sunday, January 13, 12:30 PM – Brunch/Lunch
