Shoreshim  Archives

When you’ve been around as long as Shoreshim, you collect a lot of things!
Consider this our web site’s “attic,” where we keep the boxes of old documents, forms, and other stuff that we may not want to have cluttering up the site, but may want to access sometime in the future.
Happily, these are not dusty old boxes, but easily clickable links to the files you might want.

Let us know if there’s something you’re looking for that you can’t find.
We’ll be adding new – that is, OLD! – things as we find them.

Good times! We met in person for Lag B’Omer!

Purim Fun - Guess Who?!

We had a great time at the November Retreat!

On November 14, Shoreshim held the first in-person gathering since the pandemic shut everything down in March.  It was amazing that so many members came together outside of the Lake House in Reston. It was just wonderful to see everyone, even though we all wore masks and had trouble hearing due to constant leaf blowing around the lake!  We were so lucky to have a beautiful, if chilly, Saturday morning. The discussions were lively and informative. I think everyone loved being together in person and having an opportunity to connect and share our views.
Next year in person, vaccinated, at the retreat!
