Does anyone have any information about the Lake Norman offshoot of Temple Beth El in Charlotte?
We are empty nesters from NY/NJ looking to make a few friends in the 50 to 60 age group.(don't have to be Jewish) We've been here for almost a year and would like to meet people. I've been told to go to the YMCA in Mooresville and I will check that out. Does anyone have any ideas??
