Boomers Chanukah Chappening
Tuesday December 4, 2018
It’s Chanukah! Give yourself a gift! Join us on the next Boomers trip.
We had to cancel this trip a while back because the Museum’s A/C broke down. But, second time’s the charm. The Museum of the Moving Image is the country's only museum dedicated to the art, history, technique, and technology of the moving image in
all its forms. The Museum is a one-of-a-kind destination for audiences of all ages and interests, from connoisseurs of classic cinema to children and families to avid gamers. Embracing a wide range of subjects, from nineteenth century optical toys to the
latest in digital art, the Museum explores every phase of the production, promotion, and exhibition of moving images. It offers an engaging, highly interactive core exhibition, and programs of contemporary and classic films from around the world.
Lunch is at Sarge’s Delicatessen and Diner. One of New York’s most famous purveyors of real Jewish deli. For 53 years Sarge’s has been dishing out Matzo Ball Soup, huge pastrami sandwiches and all of the classic deli food that we know and love. Here is
the best news - Lunch is included in the cost of the outing - anything on the Lunch Specials menu is no charge to you. After lunch we will be visiting Temple Emanu-El, regarded as one of the most majestic synagogues in America. Established in
l845 at a gathering of 33 Jews from Germany, Temple Emanu-El held its first services in a second-floor loft at the corner of Grand and Clinton streets on the Lower East Side. With more Jews coming from Germany to New York, and with the growing
success of the community, the congregation moved progressively uptown — both physically and spiritually. By l868 — only 23 years after founding Temple Emanu-El — the congregants built an edifice at Fifth Avenue and East 43rd Street, which was at
that time the largest synagogue structure in America. By this time, Temple Emanu-El already had gained the reputation of having the most prominent congregation of members in the country. The decision was made in the mid-l920s to relocate.
Consolidating in l927 with Temple Beth-El the congregation built its present house of worship at Fifth Avenue and East 65th Street. We will be taken on a private tour of the Temple and then have time to explore the adjacent museum.
We will be departing Bet Torah at 9:00AM, returning at 6:30PM
