For Shaare Emeth’s sages, the Shaare Emeth Seniors Steering Committee plans regular events for those who identify as senior adults. We work in partnership with Temple Emanuel, United Hebrew and Temple Israel to plan many of these events.
Jewish Seniors on the Move is a program created in 2016 where active St. Louis Jewish senior adults can enjoy day trips, tours, food and friends while exploring St. Louis! This program is presented three to four times a year in partnership with United Hebrew Congregation and Congregation Temple Israel. Shaare Emeth members are added to this list at age 65.
Stay tuned for the announcement of our next day-trip!
Led by the Seniors Steering Committees of Temple Emanuel, Shaare Emeth, Temple Israel and United Hebrew, the Seniors Lunches include themed meals and desserts with a program by a local guest speaker or entertainer. Shaare Emeth members are automatically added to this list at age 70.

We welcome Ha-Shemesh for a performance. Ha-Shemesh (sun in Hebrew) has provided audiences in St. Louis and Illinois with music from our Jewish tradition since the mid-1970s. Musical offerings include songs of our people in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, and English. Ha-Shemesh has performed with many nationally known Jewish musicians visiting St. Louis for synagogue and other concert events. Members of Ha-Shemesh are Bob Barth (guitar), Rob Birenbaum (drums), Ron Cytron (guitar), Judi Furman (flute), Michael Lyss (mandolin), and Carin Thyssen (vocals).
Lunch prior to the performance will include brisket, latkes, green beans, carrot souffle, salad, rolls, and sufganyot (jelly and non-jelly donuts) for dessert. Please let us know if you need a vegetarian and/or gluten free option.
$10 per person (no refunds)
Space is limited to 250 people so make your reservation early!
