Several of the pillars in our community came together to create a new group to host programs, education and worship opportunities for adults 55+. The group will offer a variety of stimulating, interesting events throughout the year based on members’ interests and requests.

The group took the name Pillars: Shearith’s Hazak Community. The name Hazak comes from the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism’s Organization for Mature Jews (55+).  In Hazak the het (ח) stands for Hokhmah – wisdom. The zayin (ז) for Ziknah – maturity. And the kuph (ק) for Kadima – looking ahead.
