New senior club seeks members

August 19, 2006
Seniors in our area looking to sit around and schmooze over a lunch of bagels and lox now have the opportunity to do so on a monthly basis. The new Schmooz Club — named after the Yiddish expression "to get together and talk in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere" — answers the call to provide social interaction and education on topics of interest for seniors in the Poconos.

The program is run by the Stroudsburg-based Chabad Lubavitch of the Poconos and a division of its Jewish senior group the Senior Chai Society, the Schmooz Club is seeking members to join in and meet and to identify issues that seniors want to know more about.

Although affiliated with Chabad, the club's purpose is not targeted at discussing religious issues. This is a standalone group from the spiritual and religious, where people interact.

The club meets at noon around the first day of each month on the Hebrew calendar and are held centrally, just minutes from downtown Stroudsburg. Future locations may vary. The cost is $7 to cover lunch and membership is free of charge.

For information about the Schmooz Club, contact Rabbi Mendel Bendet at 570 420-8655 or e-mail rabbi@jewishpoconos.com.
