K’sharim is a group for Kol Dorot empty (or nearly empty) nesters interested in building a new community to make friends and enjoy activities together as we embrace a new phase in our lives.

We are looking to grow as the new Kol Dorot community solidifies in our future together. So far, we’ve held a lively cocktail party at a member’s home in October 2018 and an evening of comedy and Italian food at Andiamo’s restaurant in February 2019.

Looking ahead, we are planning a range of activities that may include walking tours in the city, viewing museum and art exhibits together, taking or hosting cooking classes, forming a book club, joining together to do volunteer work, seeing shows and more! Our goal is to offer a variety of activities, so that all Kol Dorot’s empty (or nearly empty) nesters will find something that interests them.

K’sharim is for anyone with children nearing the end of their high school days or heading off to college, grad school or first jobs, etc… We hope if you are reading this and have the time as a new or seasoned empty nester that you will join our group – all of the time or just some of the time – whatever works for you! Please let us know your interests in the form below.
