Suburban Thursday Afternoon Retirees (S.T.A.R.) is a joint effort between Oak Park Temple B’nai Abraham Zion and West Suburban Temple Har Zion (WSTHZ) that meets weekly on Thursdays at WSTHZ from 1 pm to 3 pm, except on Jewish and National Holidays.  The group is open to all people in the area interested in learning about many varied topics such as Judaism, politics, health, art, music, senior living, services available in our communities, public safety issues, senior scams, etc.

S.T.A.R. was started by Sheryl Stoller, emeritus Rabbi’s Gerson and Mirelman, Annabel Abraham and Hene Waterbury (both from WSTHZ) and others.  We have guest speakers – rabbis, cantors, historians, doctors, social service folks, and reps from senior buildings.  We often visit, discuss and share items of interest to the group, such as current events of local, national and international importance.  We have trips to Chicago Symphony, and we have been guests at our various senior buildings.  WSTHZ provides coffee, tea and goodies.

S.T.A.R. is currently meeting on Zoom, Thursdays, 1pm – 3pm, West Suburban Temple Har Zion, 1040 N. Harlem Ave. River Forest.
