Shabbat Clusters

Members of the EntryPointDC community are organized into groups of 14-25 people who host monthly potluck-style Shabbat dinners in their homes or at local restaurants. This program is open to singles and couples and you can sign up to be part of an interest Shabbat Cluster (i.e. 30 somethings, outdoor enthusiasts, cultural art lovers, foodies, etc.) or a general Shabbat Cluster. Sessions start in September and in March. Join us for our mid-season happy hour on January 17 to learn more about our program and register for the spring 2018 season! Learn more about the program on our information page.

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 and there are two ways to get involved with this great opportunity, drop-in buddy or year-long buddy.

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. A year-long buddy will focus on building one on one relationships within a larger peer group and will be required to attend a certain number of social programs and correspond with individuals on a regular basis. 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.

Have questions? Please email cassidyj@edcjcc.org for more information.
