The shul is looking to set up new activity and affinity groups open to all who would enjoy connecting with other community members around a shared interest.
The new social groups aren’t intended to meet in the synagogue, but rather in the homes of participants or other outside venues.
People have already made suggestions for activities that include photography, book reading, films, bushwalking, wine appreciation, and crafts.
Affinity groups might involve parents of young children, singles, or inter-faith couples.
As with any initiative, success will depend on committed leaders who are willing to take on the responsibility for forming and running the new groups.
Leaders can choose the shared interest for the group, including ones not yet suggested, and decide on the frequency of meetings. Schedules could range from a few times a year to monthly, depending on the group.
The shul can help with publicity to its mailing list, but won’t otherwise be directly involved.
If you’d like to set up one of the new social groups, or discuss the possibility, contact our Events Coordinator here.
