Interested in joining a community for Shabbat but don't have a place to go?

Members of the EntryPointDC community are organized into small groups who host monthly potluck-style Shabbat dinners and are grouped based on age, location, and interest such as outdoors, arts, 30 somethings and more! This program is open to singles and couples and we have groups in DC, VA, and MD. Learn more on our FAQ page.

Want to lead a group? Shabbat Cluster Coordinators needed! To learn more, email Stacy at stacym@edcjcc.org

Taste-test our competitors dishes with a side of challah and learn how to make the perfect matzo ball from Prescription Chicken’s founders Valerie Zweig and Taryn Pellicone.

Second EDCJCC Community Seder
Registration Deadline: Friday, March 30 at noon

This year, the Edlavitch DCJCC’s 2nd Night Community Passover Seder will be led by Micah Hendler, founder and co-director of the Israeli-Palestinian YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus and Ari Jacobson, songleader, actor, and singer/songwriter. Join us to meet new friends, partake in joyous singing accompanied by a guitar, and fascinating discussions. The Seder will also feature a delicious (and kosher) traditional Passover meal. Whether you know all the customs and stories of Passover, or you are just learning what questions to ask, there is a place for you at our seder table.

Purchase the young professionals ticket and you will be placed at a table with other young professionals!

Buddy Up Program

The Buddy Up program strives to create friendships between young adults with and without disabilities and is part of the EDCJCC Inclusion and Disabilities programming in partnership with EntryPointDC. We are looking for young adults without disabilities who want to build peer relationships with young adults with disabilities.

As a drop-in buddy you can sign up to attend our social programs such as cooking, bowling and game night when your schedule allows. Social programs are held 2-3 times per month and buddies will interact with attendees by socializing, making conversations, and generally being a warm and welcoming face at events. Training on working with those disabilities will be offered for all those that would like to participate in the Buddy Up Program.

Please email cassidyj@edcjcc.org for more information and to sign-up for an event below as a buddy.
