We will meet at restaurants at 6:00pm, and enjoy each other’s company with a glass of wine (first glass compliments of the Cantor) some fine food, inspiring and uplifting conversation. To join us, RSVP no later than Thursday of the week prior so we can let you know where we are meeting. We need not always meet at restaurants, it’s more about being together.
