What we're about

We are a group of Jewish friends who enjoy doing a wide range of activities. Our ages and interests are as varied as our activities. Some of our activities are just for fun, some are spiritual and some are both. Events include game nights, dinner and a movie, Israeli dance night, Tea and Torah, Rock Shabbat, Tot Shabbat, yoga Shabbat, Shabbat in Nature with our furry friends, and more. Although the hosts of the group are members of Temple Emanu-El, and most of our events are held at the Temple, everyone is welcome and membership is not required. Whether you are visiting the area or live here, we look forward to meeting you at one of our events.
