My Generation: An All-Day Adventure in Galveston

My Generation is Emanu El's social group of members of our community who are 65 and older.

The group will meet at Emanu El by 8:45 am as they depart for Galveston. The air-conditioned bus will return to the synagogue upon concluding the scheduled activities.

Highlights of the day-long trip to Galveston include a private tour of the Opera House, taking in a panoramic view of Galveston from the 20th floor of the American National Bank building, a tour of the Galveston historical district and a docent led tour of Moody Mansion on Broadway.

During the day, the group will enjoy lunch at the American National Executive Dining Room where they will find a buffet with several entrees, salads, soup, dessert, tea and coffee. The trip also includes a stop at La King’s Confectionery, a 1920’s style soda fountain on the Strand.

The tour is limited to the first 40 individuals that sign up.

The cost is $20 per person and includes admission to the Moody Mansion and lunch. Individuals are also encouraged to bring a little extra money if they would like to purchase a goody at La King’s

Other programs offered by My Generation for the coming year include a Shabbat dinner in January, pre-Pesach cooking class with Rabbi Pam Silk in March and a table for the Second Night Seder at Emanu El in April. More information about these, and additional coming programs, will be shared at a later date.

The My Generation committee includes Lindy Dorn, Susie Askanase, Sharon Ettinger, Elaine Lowenstein, Rose Marie Wagman and Brenda Lind. The group's staff contacts at Congregation Emanu El are Jill Patir (713-529-5771, ext. 262 or [email protected]) and Jason Plotkin (713-535-6414 or [email protected]).
