We all go through phases in life. Early on many of us complete our education, start a family, and then focus on careers while we nurture our kids, followed by engaging with our grown children as they mature. Most of this activity connects us to VBS through our children's involvement in nursery school, Hebrew and Day School, Bar and Bar Mitzvah, and the Youth Program.
VBS Connect was inspired by the recognition that as families mature, there is an increasing need for us to connect with others, and that VBS can help fill that need. Connect was created in 2013 to provide a way for people (ages 45-60s) seeking a way to connect with other people who also no longer have major time commitments associated with raising their children. The group gathers periodically for social, cultural and educational events. Past events have included a comedy evening, a wine tasting evening, a bowling night, a night at the movies under the stars at a private home, and an evening spent enjoying Rabbi Feinstein's "Fireside Chat".
We invite you to join this community to make new friends and develop closer relationships with those you may have known casually over the years. We offer more than membership -- we offer community.
