Want to meet other interesting Jews in a smaller, more personal setting? New to DC and looking to make new connections? Looking to explore questions that matter to Jewish 20s and 30s? Like drinking? Afraid of commitment?
Gather the Jews is excited to open applications for the next round of Mini Gatherings, taking place this October. Building off of the success of previous sessions, Gather is looking to create a space for those who are in their early 20s.
What is Mini Gatherings, you ask? It is a 3-week-long mini-fellowship that brings together about 15 diverse Jews in their early 20s to meet one another and have some DMCs (deep meaningful conversations) over beers. By the end, you’ll have made new friends, had some great discussions, and laughed at least twice. Guaranteed or your money back!
What: The three gatherings will be held from 6:30 – 8:00 pm on Wednesday, November 2, 9 and 16. Each session will involve some schmoozing, drinking, and an open conversation facilitated by Senior Associate Jackie about questions relevant to Jewish 20s and 30s, such as “Are Jews different?” “What are the unique challenges to being Jewish today?” and “Does Judaism have any deal-breakers?”
No background or knowledge necessary – everyone is welcome. In addition, Jackie will host a Shabbat meal on Friday, November 11th at her apartment in Cleveland Park. Must commit to attending all three sessions and the dinner.
Who: People who do not feel connected to a Jewish community in the DC area and is looking to meet other Jews in a smaller, more personal way in their early 20s.
Application: Apply here. Applications close Wednesday October 26th at midnight.
