Upcoming Events
Announcing the

Annual Round Robin Dinner!
Join the Round Robin dinner on Saturday night, January 7th, 2017 at 7:30pm.  This is a great opportunity to mix and mingle with new and veteran community members.
For those who aren't familiar with the Round Robin rules, here's how it goes:
  • Some people host appetizer, some host the main course.
  • Guests are divided up into around 10-12 people per household and contribute a dairy dish to one of their hosts or a dessert.
  • Guests hop from House 1 (appetizer) to House 2 (main course) and then finally, we all gather together for dessert at the Shul.
Since this type of event takes a lot of time to organize, please submit
THIS FORM by December 31st to sign up.
We hope to see you all there!
