Shabbat Clusters
Celebrate Shabbat your way! Shabbat Clusters are groups of people that get together to celebrate Shabbat once a month. From dinners, lunches, and brunches to playdates and happy hours, Shabbat Clusters are a great way to make new friends and start traditions. Every Shabbat Cluster season starts with a Kickoff Dinner at the EDCJCC for all participants.

Registration for Fall Shabbat Clusters has passed. Please stay tuned for Spring Shabbat Clusters' registration.


From classical Jewish Text, to Yoga and Spiritual Practice, to film, music and community service, preparing for and celebrating Holidays at the J has never been more fun, meaningful and content rich.  Events for young families, singles and couples, and 50+.
