Ansche Chesed Salons 2020

Sunday, March 15, 2020 19 Adar 5780

11:15 AM - 1:30 PM

Salons are opportunities for small groups of synagogue members to gather in an intimate setting and learn about the vocations or avocations of other members. Our community is diverse and multi-talented, and these informal gatherings are meant to be an opportunity to learn and to create relationships.

As space is limited, we invite you to list below which Salon (or Salons) you would like to attend, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

At this year’s salons we will be learning from the following Ansche Chesed members:

With shared interests in photography and culture, both Debra and Randy have traveled throughout their lives. Shortly after their wedding Randy and Debra left their jobs and headed to Asia for five months. This experience led to a love of the region and a shared passion for travel that did not lessen once they had children. When their son Eli was 9 and their daughter Abigail was 2 they decided to once again put their New York lives on hold and, this time, go traveling as a family. The four of them and their “eight wandering feet” visited seventeen countries as they went around the world for the year.
