Ruth and Fred Scheuer Life Enrichment Series

Note: Due to concerns regarding Coronavirus and large gatherings, this year’s event has been POSTPONED; check back often to find out about rescheduling.

The Ruth and Fred Scheuer Life Enrichment Series is an endowed annual event. It was established to honor their contributions and recognize those values that encompassed Ruth and Fred’s lives. Judaism and love of Israel were important to them; the ideals of a strong family unit and lifetime learning were also dear to their hearts. During Ruth’s life, she involved herself in work that enhanced the well-being of people struggling to rise above, especially children. From his involvement with the founding of Israel in 1948, Fred was passionate about a strong and independent Israel. Together we honor their vision of L’dor v’dor – learning from generation to generation! 

This year’s event features Master Storyteller Corinne Stavish (click to learn more about Corinne). The weekend will start with a  Kabbalat Shabbat service on Friday, March 20, with a presentation following catered Shabbat dinner ($18 per person). On Shabbat morning she will give the D’var Torah, and following Kiddush lunch will engage us in an interactive session using stories about mitzvot. On Sunday Corinne will lead us in a workshop titled Passover: The Ultimate Storytelling Holiday.

We hope that you will join us for one or more of the events through the weekend. RSVPs are needed for the Friday night dinner only by March 13. Please call the office or go here to RSVP.

Thank you to Gerald and Edna Willis for their generous support of establishing this endowment.
