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.

Please email Charlotte with registration questions.

Who Can Participate & What Will It Look Like?

gatherings are available for adults in groups of 5-15 members.

A group member will facilitate the conversation or experience.

Meetings may be either in-person or over Zoom.


The first 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.

Upcoming gatherings:

gatherings #1 - Hike & Kibitz

Our community is filled with beautiful parks, easy trails and walking paths. We’ll visit both fan favorite locations and explore some lesser known areas. Of course, the conversation and connections will be amazing as well.

TIME: 7:00pm

DATES: Wednesdays starting July 7th. Meet every other week for 4 weeks -  July 21, August 4, August 18.

LOCATION:  TBD and will vary for each session. All sessions will be outdoors, in-person. 

FACILITATORS:  Erica Alemdar & Ellyn Ross

gatherings #2 - They’re Jewish, I didn’t know that!

As a group we’ll identify and explore some famous and unknown Jewish personalities. What was it that brought them “fame” and how are they connected to Judaism?

TIME: 7:00pm

DATES: Thursdays starting July 8th. Meet every other week for 4 weeks - July 22, August 5, August 19.

LOCATION:  TBD. May be Zoom or outdoors, in-person. 

FACILITATOR:  Tracey Messer


For couples who want to join a group together, each should sign up individually.
