“Friendshipping”

Come Share Your Life Experiences, Tough Questions, and Hard-earned Savvy about Making New Friends and Being a Good Friend

(1) What kind of friend do you try to be?        (2) What do you seek from your friends?  

(3) Does friendship “just happen” and “grow naturally” – or are there skills and techniques that can be helpful?  What’s one you’ve learned?

(4) Is friendship different at different stages of life?   (5) Do women’s and men’s friendships differ?  How?

(6) How do you feel about re-connecting with  old friends  with whom you have lost touch,  via Internet searching or other means?

               (7) Are your friendships affected by digital technologies?   (Those Facebook “Friends”…)

               (8) What is one of your favorite portrayals of friendship in literature, movies, TV, or other  genres?                  (Friends, Golden Girls, Seinfeld, or….?)          

               (9) What happens when friendships change, falter, or fail?

Optional Reading: Wikipedia has an excellent article on Friendship, discussing its characteristics, differences at different stages of life and in different cultures and eras, relationship to health and happiness, and types ranging from Agentic Friendship (duh!), Bromance, Boston Marriage, and Comrade.

Want more?  The Friendship Crisis: Finding, Making, and Keeping Friends When You’re Not a Kid Anymore by Marla Paul.  Deepest dive: The Politics of Friendship by Jacques Derrida.

The Salon sessions are informed by Gross’ work at Columbia University as co-chair of the University Seminar on Innovation, and inspired by his book about the patron saint of conversation, Socrates’ Way, which has been published in 26 countries. Enjoy light refreshments and thoughtful conversation. Topics will be announced one month before each Salon.

Please arrive early, as seating is very limited.

Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Join Charles Berman, Town of North Hempstead Receiver of Taxes, as he discusses STAR, Senior Citizens, Veterans and other exemptions that could help you lower your property taxes. He will also review recent changes to the STAR program.

A law approved by the New York State Legislature has changed the School Tax Relief (STAR) Program for first-time applicants who filed (in Nassau County) after January 2, 2015. New applicants will also be required to register directly with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. All new STAR Credit recipients will be issued a check directly from New York State instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of the benefit will be the same regardless of how you receive it.

Current Basic and Enhanced STAR Exemption recipients will keep their exemption on their School Tax bill as long as they continue to own and occupy their current home.  The STAR Program applies only to School District Taxes.

The Parkville Book Group will discuss Michael Cunningham's 2014 novel, The Snow Queen. Both heartwarming and heartrending, The Snow Queen is a haunting exploration of the longings that seem to define us and the love that ultimately sustains us. In The Snow Queen, a heartbroken man turns to religion after seeing a vision in the sky above Central Park. His musician brother takes drugs that he thinks will help him compose a ballad for his seriously ill wife. These three main characters must decide what in modern life is "really real," what drives us to do what we do, and what is truly necessary and important in our lives.

TEMPLE EMANUEL OF GREAT NECK          150 Hicks Lane, Great Neck 11024

Temple Emanuel of Great Neck and the Great Neck Library are co-sponsoring "Arthur Miller at 100," on Sunday, November 20 at 3:00 p.m. at Temple Emanuel, 150 Hicks Lane, Great Neck 11024. This is a celebration of playwright Arthur Miller on the one hundredth year of his birth. His voice and vision enriched the theater for more than half a century. His plays, many of them classics, tapped into the very soul of American society and into the lives of the men and women who sought to make sense of it. Four of his plays were performed during this past theater season confirming his status as "The Last of the Giants". The program is created and performed by actress Shirley Romaine. It includes background on Miller, his plays, live performance and selections from his films.

Shirley Romaine has performed both on and off Broadway, on daytime and prime time TV, and in original programs incorporating theater, poetry, art, dance and music throughout the Metropolitan area and beyond. She was for many years the host of "Artscene on Long Island," for Cablevision.
