SAJE is Postponed for the immediate future
SAJE was founded in 2005 at Community Synagogue of Rye as a way for seniors ages 60 and above to gather for a variety of regularly scheduled stimulating daytime programs to enrich their participation in synagogue life. Everyone is always welcome to bring a friend.
SAJE meets Mondays and Thursdays from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at CSR, Community Synagogue of Rye, 200 Forest Avenue, Rye, NY 10580. All programs are followed by a catered lunch.
SAJE occasionally meets offsite for activities such as dining in local restaurants, docent guided museum tours, theater trips and more.
CSR clergy, professional staff and support staff are actively involved to enhance the SAJE experience.
SAJE thanks CSR members who have presented or connected SAJE to programs.
Have you an area of expertise or hobby or taken a trip or read a book that you can share with SAJE?
SAJE encourages all CSR members and friends to be involved in SAJE programming and can almost guarantee that they will feel as enriched and appreciated as does our SAJE group.
If you are interested in participating or if you have a skill you would like to share and/or teach with the group please contact SAJE@comsynrye.org.
