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”. 


"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to live together in unity!"                                        Psalm 133
