About Our Events:


When…approximately monthly, often tied to a Jewish Holiday.


Where…hosted by local members or, for larger events, in a local gathering spot.

Given the large geographic span of our membership, we generally hold events along the Highway 4 corridor (Murphys/Angels Camp/Copperopolis/Bar XX and the Hwy 49/108 corridor in Sonora & Jamestown.


Cost…Most events are free, "Pot-Luck” affairs.  There is a fee to attend our catered Passover Seder that helps offset the costs.


Who can attend...Members, their families & friends, Jews   who live in the area full or part time or are touring the area as well as anyone else interested in participating in a Jewish gathering.  Singles, couples and families are all welcome!


Dress...While we occasionally have a themed event where dressing for the occasion is encouraged, our events are generally “Mountain Casual”.
