First Fridays:

Our consistent monthly “First Friday” Shabbat meals have given birth to a strong nucleus of young adults. Close friendships have developed. A young couple who met at First Friday last year has recently married. Numerous job referrals have resulted in successful placements. Most importantly, a flame has been kindled that is rapidly evolving into a young adult community characterized by friendship, mutual accountability, and a shared sense of both personal and communal responsibility.
