Larchmont Temple

Small Groups are peer-led groups, whose participants come together around a shared interest on a regular basis with the understanding that Jewish tradition and deep personal relationships add meaning to our lives.
Each Small Group will include 8-14 Larchmont Temple members [including the co-leaders] and meet 6-8 times over the year. For couples who want to join a group together, each of you should sign up as two individuals.
Please sign up for only one new group. If the small group you're interested in fills up, definitely sign up for the wait list and give us a little time. Questions, or want to join a waitlist?

JOES dinner group – Jews for Organic Environmentally Sustainable dinner group

After a successful first year, J.O.E.S. - "Jews for Organic Environmentally Sustainable food" - returns, drawing links between Reform Judaism and issues surrounding sustainable food and agriculture. Over the course of 6 dinners at group members' homes, we will share great food and wine and address how the food choices we make reflect our values as Reform Jews. Dinners, prepared by the group, will be focussed on a culinary theme and topical readings, both secular and religious, will anchor the discussions at each gathering. What is Eco Kosher? Is there a connection between organic agriculture and Tikkun Olam? How are agricultural innovations in Israel influencing farming in other parts of the world? Think of it as a potluck dinner club for LT Members who care deeply about their food choices and see the intersection of food, cooking, sustainability and Judaism as a central part of their identity.


Our JOES meetings will be approximately once a month on a Tuesday at 8pm. Location will rotate among members homes.
The first 2 dates will be:
11/14 & 12/19
Couples must sign up individually. There is a cap of 14 participants (including the two co-leaders and their wives).
Participants are expected to attend all, or most, of the meetings.

Co-Leaders: Ari Perkins (ER doc, aspiring cook and resident mixologist amperk001@yahoo.com) and Adam Kaye (Culinary Director at Blue Hill at Stone Barns adamdkaye@me.com )

Climbing Hikes with the LT Wandering Jews

If The Hills Are Alive is more than just the lyrics from the Sound of Music then join us for exciting climbs in Harriman Park, Hudson Highlands and Northern NJ. We will better understand why so many biblical stories occur on mountains. The climbing group will go out in the fall, winter and spring. This will be the best cardio offering in the hiking groups with a healthy pace. A review of the scheduled hikes and the gear for the climbs and the approximate distances (5 to 8 miles) and vertical elevations ascended will be discussed at an orientation meeting following the October 15th signups. The climbs will be run every month.

LT Wandering Jews is committed to helping LT members get outside to experience the beauty and sanctity of nature. This year we're offering three different ways to do just that. Please sign up for the group that most closely matches your interests and abilities, and those with at least 10 committed hikers will run as advertised.

The Climbing Hike Group will leave Larchmont Temple promptly at 8:00am on the following dates: 11/12/17, 12/3/17, 1/14/18, 2/11/18, 3/4/18, 4/1/18, 5/6/18, 6/3/18, 6/24/18, 7/8/18

Walking Hikes with the LT Wandering Jews

Don’t let the name fool you, we will still be walking on dirt roads and trails. Our walks will occur in Westchester, Harriman and NJ along the Palisades. We will limit the vertical ups and downs and still see beautiful sites. Walks will average between 3 and 5 miles and we will stop along our route to ponder deep questions and possibly a prayer too. A review of the scheduled hikes and the gear for the walking hikes will be further discussed at an orientation meeting following the October 15th signups. The walks will be run every other month and we might have umbrella hikes if the outing day is raining.

Family Hikes with the LT Wandering Jews

Walks on trails and some dirt roads with special adventures on every hike. We will not go more than 1 or 2 miles and will have time to roll over logs, investigate animal signs, feed horses, make pizzas and celebrate a hike with a short walk to Dunkin Doughnuts. These hikes will all be local so children of any age can have much of the day for other activities too. Rain coats and rubber boots for muddy trails or rainy days will be suggested. There will be one family hike every other month. These will be fun but you need to sign up during the October 15th period. One member from each family should sign up. We will have a meeting following the signups to review the calendar dates.

Interfaith Couples in Conversation

How does an interfaith household celebrate the holidays? How do non-Jewish family members participate in the Bar/Bat Mitzvah journey and other life cycle events? How do different religious backgrounds and cultural experiences connect with the principles of Reform Judaism and Larchmont Temple? These are just a few of the questions we will cover in a small group setting that welcomes diversity and respects the complexity of our various traditions. This is a great opportunity to interact and learn from others as we explore ways to connect and celebrate traditions with each other and our families.

Interfaith Couples in Conversation will meet on the following Sundays at 2:00pm: 10/22, 12/3, 1/14, 2/4, 3/4, 4/15, 5/20. Meetings will take place at either the temple or a group member's home. If there's interest, we may be able to arrange for group babysitting to occupy young children during grownup-only meetings.

The Whiskey Jewbilee Group

Life may be complicated, however getting together with fellow LT members to sip whiskey and discuss life should always be a simple joy. Our group will gather at different members’ homes each month to learn about and enjoy different whiskeys while engaging in meaningful and thoughtful dialogue. We’ll discuss life’s big questions, as well as smaller ones we’ve all been wondering for years like, what’s the difference between a bourbon and a rye, is there any difference between an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan, and what does it really mean when you’re told a Scotch tastes peaty? There’s much to learn and much to enjoy.
Our group will meet monthly with the first group being held on Thursday, October 26.

Mah Jongg

Mah jongg is an ancient Chinese tile game of strategy, but the American variation interestingly was codified in the 1930s by a group of Jewish women known as the National Mah Jongg League. Originally a big pastime in the Jewish bungalow colonies, it is popular today with younger people as well. This small group will meet on one Friday morning a month to play. Open to all experience levels, from those who have been playing for years to those who have never played and would like to learn, and everything in between. We will follow standard National Mah Jongg League rules. Please bring your 2017 national mah jongg card to the first class. If you dont have one they can be purchased at The Corner Store in Larchmont.
We will meet on Friday mornings from 9:30-11:30am at Larchmont Temple with tentative dates planned as November 3, December 1, January 5, February 2, March 2, April 6, and May 4th.

Who are you, really?

So you’re a mom. You had a kid or two in the city, and then one day you landed in the suburbs. You commute, or you don’t. You love your work, but wish you had more time with your kids. Or maybe love the time with your kids, but wish you had more time and space for other experiences. No matter what, life is really full, and still kind of new. Most of the people you meet are through your kids, their classes and activities. Most of the conversations you have with adults are regularly interrupted by said kids and are usually about said kids, which means that your story rarely comes up.

That’s why we need a moms group that’s about more than being a mom. It’s about our experience in the world. It’s about getting to know each other in a real way – our complete, complicated and sometimes conflicted selves. It’s about being honest, open, and a little vulnerable. We’ll gather monthly on a weeknight, and there will definitely be food and wine. We’ll talk about what makes us worry, what makes us happy, what totally intimidates us, and what brings us true satisfaction. The goal is that, together, we’ll discover who we are, really.

Young and experienced moms are encouraged to join, because we all deserve this time for ourselves. First meeting will be Nov. 6 at 7:30pm.

Who are you, really?
So you’re a mom. You had a kid or two in the city, and then one day you landed in the suburbs. You commute, or you don’t. You love your work, but wish you had more time with your kids. Or maybe love the time with your kids, but wish you had more time and space for other experiences. No matter what, life is really full, and still kind of new. Most of the people you meet are through your kids, their classes and activities. Most of the conversations you have with adults are regularly interrupted by said kids and are usually about said kids, which means that your story rarely comes up. That’s why we need a moms group that’s about more than being a mom. It’s about our experience in the world. It’s about getting to know each other in a real way – our complete, complicated and sometimes conflicted selves. It’s about being honest, open, and a little vulnerable. We’ll gather monthly on a weeknight, and there will definitely be food and wine. We’ll talk about what makes us worry, what makes us happy, what totally intimidates us, and what brings us true satisfaction. The goal is that, together, we’ll discover who we are, really. Young and experienced moms are encouraged to join, because we all deserve this time for ourselves. First meeting will be Nov. 6 at 7:30pm.

In the Zone: Shabbat Yoga

Yoga
Shabbat Morning Yoga is an ideal time to pause from our often-hectic lives to rest, breathe, and re-center ourselves. By slowing down, we become open to experiencing our body, mind, and neshama as one. We’ll incorporate lessons from our great teachers related to the weekly Torah portion, the latest holiday, or related prayer. Together we'll explore how yoga enhances our Shabbat practice and supports us to embody Jewish teachings.

Come on October 14th for an introductory session before you sign up on the 15th. You should have some experience with yoga, bring a mat, and wear comfortable clothing. Starting in November, we will meet on the first Saturday of each month.

Since we will be meeting at LT on Shabbat, this group is not capped at 14.

Co-leaders: Kyle Greenberg (krgreenberg@gmail.com), Jen Haas (jrjmh@aol.com) & Bethie Miller (bmiller@larchmonttemple.org)
