Peloton Club: #BethOrRides

Club Captain: Ken Harris,

Taking classes on a Peloton bike is great fun, not to mention, a wonderful way to stay in shape. Even more fun is riding with "friends". For this club, we can, but don't have to, do live rides together or, for more flexibility, do classes on demand together or just look for each other on the leaderboard whenever we do a ride. Join the group #BethOrRides and give out high fives to encourage our Beth or friends and neighbors. (Don't forget to share your leaderboard name with Ken, so he can circulate it with the group.)


Pickle Ball Club

Club Captain: Lisa Rosan,

This club is for members looking to learn and play the sport of Pickle Ball with the goal of organizing a league. All levels from beginners to experienced are welcome to join in the fun!  Note - there will be a fee when we need to use indoor space; price dependent on interest.

Tai Chi Club

Club Captain: Howard Blum,, 215-802-0052

This club provides teaching and practicing of Tai Chi for people of all ages and abilities. Tai Chi is a moving meditation. Practitioners report improved health, while achieving a meditative calm. We focus on Cheng Man-Ching's 37 posture short form. When indoors, chairs can be provided for those who prefer a seated position. We also discuss the historic significance of Tai Chi as one of the oldest and softest martial art forms. Our club meets for 1-hour every Wednesday at Beth Or (indoor location is Rosenfeld Social Hall or downstairs Community Room) with your choice of time, 11am or 5:15pm. We are always interested in attracting new member participation. There is no attendance record, so members come and go as they please.  Our motto is, “Stay Sung” (relax - both mind and body). We are all beginners; even after we have learned the form, we still depend on a beginners mind.


Women in the Torah Discussion Club

Club Captains: Beth Rabinowitz, & Toby Sterling,

Do you want to dig deeper into learning about inspiring women in the Torah like Lilith, Sarah, Miriam & Ruth? Join other Beth Or women to study the women of the Torah & more! The group will choose a leader/ teacher to guide them in discussion.
