Connections Committee Trip to Amherst

Sunday, March 24, 2019 17 Adar II 5779

9:00 AM - 6:30 PMMeet at Jenks Center, 109 Skillings Rd., Winchester

This year, our main adventure will be a day trip to Amherst: Brunch at Bistro 63 (www.bistro63.com) and visit to the Yiddish Book Center (www.yiddishbookcenter.org). We’ll cruise by luxury coach to Amherst, departing Winchester at about 9:00 am, arriving at the restaurant around 11:00 am for a lovely brunch in a private room. The vegetarian brunch will include gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options. Then we’ll travel a very short distance to the Book Center where we will have a private 1.5-hour tour, leaving some time to peruse parts of the museum individually and visit the gift shop (of course!) and arrive back in Winchester at about 6:30 pm. All inclusive cost (except for gift shop purchases) is $50. Deadline to register (below) has been extended to March 17. For more information, you may want to read Aaron Lansky’s book "Outwitting History: The Amazing Adventures of a Man Who Rescued a Million Yiddish Books." Lansky is the founder and now president of the Book Center. Connections is open to any member of Temple Shir Tikvah who is 13 years of age and older who identifies as a woman. For questions, please contact connections@shir-tikvah.org.
