55+ Social Group

Or Shalom's 55+ Social Group was created to better meet the needs of this enthusiastic demographic in our community at large. Members and nonmembers come together several times a year for a variety of programs and events. This group is self-run and programming reflects the groups interests.


Join us as we socialize, have a nosh, and get to know each other. Participate in programming that engages the heart and mind as we gather several times during the year to discuss all issues that make the "world go round," current events, music, book reviews, comedy, Israel and more hot topics!


55+ Social Club membership dues are now FREE! Non-temple members are welcome to join this group. Please email Bill at or call the temple office at 847-362-1948 to sign up!
