This is a group to connect young people in lively social setting to develop fellowship and enrich the group members’ Judaism. The Chavurah creates a space for young Jews to meet other local like-minded young Jews to engage in vibrant Jewish life and community.  The group will hold a monthly Shabbat dinner after services and Oneg to celebrate joyously  Shabbat together. They may sing songs, play games, and/or go over a Jewish topic. Game nights will also be held monthly on Sundays. Join us for various board games like Chess, Catan, or DnD.
