we are smart, social, generous and opinionated.

We want to engage in fun, social events and develop life long friendships.
We want to learn in a warm & easy going atmosphere.
We want to share and develop our skills.
We want to discuss relevant issues both local and global.
We want to proudly provide funds to our synagogue, our religious & early childhood center schools and other worthy organizations.

For all this and more -
