Casino Night At Temple Chaverim

Temple Chaverim will host its third annual Casino and Entertainment Night on Saturday, May 10, from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Club Chaverim will include live music and comedy in the “Lucky Chai Lounge,” as well as gaming tables including a game show, blackjack, roulette, craps and Texas Hold’em; all operated by Event Kings.

“We’ve expanded to a Night Club concept which includes musical entertainment with our Temple Chaverim Band,” said Jill Schwartz, the event’s chairperson. “Since the night falls in between the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness we have a Horse Racing theme for the evening. Wear a Kentucky Derby style hat and receive an additional raffle ticket. Join us for a fun evening.”

In addition to the gaming and the live entertainment there will be over 40 valuable raffle baskets. Some of the prizes will include Yankee/Mets tickets, electronics, restaurant and retail store gift certificates plus many more items.

Casino Night is open to the public. The fee for entry is $80 per person, which includes gaming table access, gourmet cocktail-style dinner, desserts and an open bar. All attendees must be 18 years or older and at least 21 to enjoy the open bar.

Members and guests of North Shore Synagogue’s Brotherhood BBQ and Erev Shabbat Service enjoyed a wonderful summer’s evening in early July with a classic BBQ and services led by Brotherhood, with help from Rabbi Jaimee Shalhevet and Cantor Rich Pilatsky.   

“This is a wonderful way to connect with other members of Brotherhood, which focuses on building camaraderie among our members, and instilling a strong sense of community away from the hectic pressures of our day-to-day lives,” said  Brotherhood co-president Jeffrey Levine.

Kids love amusement parks, and they especially love one aspect of these fanciful places above all others — the twists, turns and death-defying loops of the mighty roller coaster. Given the chance, it’s likely that almost any child would love the chance to actually build one of their own.

Susan Sears of Port Jefferson runs an ongoing series of science classes aimed at stimulating the growing minds of children. Recently, she was holding one of them at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library on Roller Coaster design, which she described as “a physics lesson disguised as fun.”
