Gather’s Big MOVE!

In the past year, we’ve been through a LOT. We’ve changed our name and recreated our brand. We’ve increased our staff from a team of four to seven. We’ve ramped up our engagement strategy so you and thousands of other 20s/30s can find their people and place in Jewish DC. And now…we’ve moved into our very […]

Finding Your Shabbat Squad

I’ve been working at the Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center (EDCJCC) for the past few years as the Director of EntryPointDC, the 20s and 30s program based out of the center.

Le Diplomate, Croissants, French coffee, party buses to wineries – these are a few of Jason Sarfati’s favorite things. I met this super cool French-Sephardic-Arlingtonian/Jewish Lawyer at our last GatherDC happy hour (PS – next one is March 15th), and decided to find out more about his European roots over cups of caffeine at Dupont Circle’s […]

Rogue Rabbi to host alternative Purim experience in a Synagogue

Rabbi Aaron Potek, GatherDC’s infamous rabbi and provocateur, is pushing the envelope yet again. Potek announced earlier this week that he will be hosting an alternative Purim experience this Wednesday night…in a synagogue. It’s a risky move for someone who works with Jewish 20s and 30s, many of whom don’t connect to synagogues. But Potek […]
