Friday, June 3, 6 p.m. – Kabbalat Shabbat service
In fiction as in life, Stay the Night’s Maureen learns you’re never too old to make things right, to fall in love, and to remember you’re beautiful. Local Stowe author Kathleen Schwartz began her professional life as a girly “geek” until she attended a writing seminar and was inspired to begin a new career as a fiction writer. Stay the Night is her first novel and a new romance novel set in Mexico is underway. Schwartz will join us to discuss her career development and her novels. This event is free and refreshments will be served.
JCOGS introduces the first of a four-part series on “Life’s Challenging Decisions”. “Strategies for Living a Longer, Healthier Life” will be presented by Gary S. Moak, M.D., past president of the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry, recipient of its Clinician-of-the-Year award and author of “Beat Depression to Stay Healthier and Live Longer: A Guide for Older Adults and Their Families”.
A practicing geriatric psychiatrist with over 30 years experience treating older adults with a wide range of psychiatric and behavioral problems related to diseases of aging, Gary Moak is currently assistant professor of psychiatry at the Geisel Medical School at Dartmouth, where he serves as Chief of Geriatric Psychiatry.
Dr. Moak will discuss issues in aging, mental health, and his recent book. This lecture is free. Discussion and refreshments will follow.

The Israeli Scouts will be coming to Stowe this summer! The Friendship Caravan consists of Israeli scouts ages 16 -17 who will perform at JCOGS on July 10 at 3:00 pm. Are you home the weekend of July 9-11? Do you have two extra beds in your home? Do you want to show off your Vermont hospitality and JCOGS spirit? Do you want to know more about the people, culture, land, history and life in Israel today? Then this is your chance!
We are looking for just two more host families who can accommodate two scouts for Saturday and Sunday nights, July 9 and July 10, and return them to JCOGS on Monday morning, July 11. This is unique experience not to be missed! Please contact Miriam Rosenbloom: email@example.com if you are interested.
