New to DC (or the surrounding ‘burbs)? Just graduated college? Need a little Judaism in your life? Want to make new friends? Want to commiserate with others in the post-college feels?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you’re in luck!
GatherDC is excited to open applications for our next round of Mini Gatherings, taking place in mid-late August. GatherDC is dedicating this offering to those who are in their early 20s and have just graduated college (aka Winter 2016 or Spring 2017).
What is Mini Gatherings anyway? It is a 3-week-long mini-fellowship that brings together 10-15 diverse Jews in similar life stages 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!)
When: The three gatherings will be held from 6:30 – 8:00 pm on Tuesday, August 15th, August 22nd and August 29th. (Plus, a free Shabbat dinner in there. Who doesn’t love a good Friday night meal?)
What: Each session will involve some schmoozing, drinking, and an open conversation facilitated by GatherDC’s Rabbi Aaron about questions relevant to post-college Jewish life, such as “How can I be Jewish without Hillel?” or “If I didn’t do Jewish life in college, how do I do it in a new city?”, “How do I make friends in a post-college world?” and “What can my adult Judaism look like?”
No background or knowledge necessary – everyone is welcome. In addition, Aaron will host a Shabbat meal on Friday, August 25th at his apartment in Dupont. You must commit to attending all three sessions and the dinner to participate.
Who: People who just graduated college and are new to the DC-metro area.
Application: Open until August 9th at midnight. Apply now.
