Temple Israel’s “Small Groups” Initiative is for congregants who want to build connections through shared interests

Temple Israel’s Small Groups initiative (Mifgashim/Encounters) is designed to build connections among congregants in a new way, using shared interests or passions, while maintaining a broader Jewish context. The congregant-led micro-communities will provide a space to learn, explore and grow as Jewish adults, to foster deeper relationships, and to strengthen the bonds within our congregation. A typical group size will be 8-12 members focusing on intimacy and connection.

We are launching 4 groups this fall:

  • Golfing group
  • Challah baking group
  • LGBT and Allies group
  • Walking group

Each group will be led by our own fellow congregants who have stepped up and been trained by Rabbi Bethie Miller and the UJA. We are looking forward to bringing people who may not know each other together and have a great time. We will be following all health protocols laid out by Temple Israel and ensure a safe environment for all to participate.

Interested congregants are encouraged to sign up here.
