What Is It? 

gatherings are small group conversations and experiences to build relationships and deepen connections within our congregation.

gatherings provide opportunities for ST-KA members to create, engage in, and explore new relationships by participating in small group conversations and experiences around common interests.

Topics may include architecture, Jewish biographies, sports, Jewish thought, global warming and movies with a Jewish theme to list a few.

Registration for the first two gatherings is closed.  Please email J.B. Davis for information on upcoming gatherings.

Who Can Participate & What Will It Look Like?

gatherings are available for adults, will be in groups of 5-15 members, and will initially meet once a month for six months.

A group member will facilitate the conversation or experience.

Due to the pandemic, ALL meetings will be done via Zoom.


These pilot gatherings were created by congregants Elissa Katz & Lori Rosenberg along with ST-KA’s J.B. Davis and with input from Temple members. We also spoke to other synagogues across the U.S. doing similar programming.


Current gatherings:

gatherings #1 - Takeout Nation
