New and Nearly Empty Nesters

Do you have children who are nearing the end of their high school days? Or heading off to college, grad school, or their first jobs? If you are, then TBE's New and Nearly Empty Nesters is the group for you!

This period for us, this transitional life stage, is one in which we can re-connect with the TBE community, and connect with one another in new and meaningful ways. New and Nearly Empty Nesters seeks to foster these connections through regular Shabbat dinners, lectures from timely and relevant guest speakers and social opportunities with other TBE members who are learning to live with empty (or soon-to-be) empty nests.

More About deCordova Sculpture Park 

deCordova Sculpture Park, located in Lincoln, MA is a major venue for the exhibition and interpretation of modern and contemporary outdoor sculpture. The Sculpture Park occupies 30 acres of beautifully landscaped lawns, forests, fields, gardens, and terraces on a rolling site along the shore of Flint's Pond in Lincoln.
