Facilitated by Tom O'Brien and Rabbi Howard Shapiro, this series expanded to four programs for its second season. The series encouraged participants to explore and discuss timely topics in an open, interactive setting, using videos as a jumping off point. Pizza and beverages were served and participants sat at round tables to encourage interaction.


Special thanks to the Royal Poinciana Chapel in Palm Beach for the use of their fellowship hall for the program.The series is a membership benefit with free admission to Fellowship members; a small fee is charged to non-members.

Fellowship Friday

More than 100 participants joined us for our annual morning of community service on the day after Thanksgiving. After a light breakfast hosted by Temp[le Emanu-El in Palm Beach, volunteers headed out to their choice of nonprofit venues to lend a hand.


Sites for the 2018 event include:

   Adopt-a-Family Program Reach

   Beach Cleanup

   Big Dog Ranch Rescue

   Levine Jewish Residential & Famly Service


New, unwrapped toys and nonperishable food and toiletries were also collected and donated to those in need.
