With a possible few exceptions, what the SAJ Adventurers all have in common is that we are considered to be "Senior Citizens" - that is, we're older, probably retired, and dealing with a number of issues that are common to older people. Our main focus is on planning daytime activities during the week to places of interest in the New York City area. Some of the outings under consideration for the spring and summer are: A visit to the 9/11 Museum, a tour of the Chinese American Exclusion/Inclusion exhibit at the New York Historical Society led by SAJ Member Jordan Wouk, a guided tour of Roosevelt Island conducted by SAJ Member Elaine Kramer’s son, David, who has been instrumental in the development of the island, a guided tour of the New York Stock Exchange by SAJ Member Hugette Havdala’s son, Gerard, who works at the exchange, and, an annual favorite, attendance at a Staten Island Yankees baseball game.
We also distribute information that might be of interest to Seniors and we use our list-serv as a vehicle for members to share information about health issues, social services and other topics of interest to Seniors. Send your e-mail address to Ron Kushner if you would like to be included and think you could benefit from any of these.

welcome to the sAJ community
We’re a community that believes it’s possible to lead a 21st-century life that is deeply rooted in both Jewish tradition and contemporary civilization. Judaism helps us find meaning and inspiration as we seek to lead lives committed to spiritual growth, social justice, and building community. We welcome the richness that diversity brings to this community, where we learn about, struggle with, and even question our Judaism as we continue to "reconstruct" it for our times.

Lunch and Learn: “Women in the Torah and Midrash: Exploring Genesis” Taught by Rabbi Lauren Grabelle Herrmann Bring your own nash, SAJ will provide drinks. RSVPs helpful (but ok to come regardless!) In each session, we will explore women and women’s roles as written in the Torah and explored in rabbinic midrash and/or modern interpretation. Through each session, we will look at texts and think critically about why the torah was written as it was and its implications for today.
