March will start on a scholarly note and then be filled with the sound of music.
On Thursday, March 1, scholars from the World Zionist Organization will present the film, Ben-Gurion: Epilogue. The film depicts David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, at age 82 and living in the seclusion at his desert home, remote from all political discourse, which allows him a perspective on the Zionist enterprise. His introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his reflections provide a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and for the future of Israel. Lunch will include fried chicken strips, mashed potatoes, green beans, coleslaw, fresh fruit and bread pudding.
On Thursday, March 8, the Silvernotes will present songs for Spring. Lunch will include salmon croquettes, peas and carrots, creamed corn, mixed green salad, fresh fruit and yellow cake with a caramel sauce.
On Thursday, March 15, Two of Diamonds (Ann Waterman and Beth Olliges) will return, welcoming spring with songs about freedom and wings, plus Passover parodies. Lunch will include chicken and rice soup, deli platter, fresh fruit, chips and assorted cookies and brownies.
On Thursday, March 22, classical pianist Nada will return for a program in the main sanctuary. Lunch in the Heideman will include pastrami style chicken, rice pilaf, mixed vegetables, mixed green salad, fresh fruit and March and April celebratory birthday and anniversary cake.
On Thursday, March 29, University of Louisville guitar students will be back for a program. Lunch will include meatloaf, cabbage, roasted potatoes, mixed green salad, fresh fruit and peach cobbler.
