Welcome To Hamishim

Hamishim consists of social programs for members who are simply interested in adult focused small group gatherings and activities. It’s a great way to meet and interact with others.

PS – Hamishim means 50 in Hebrew but there are no hard and fast rules as to who can participate.

More about Hamishim:

 
First off, Hamishim programs are fun!  Our programs are designed to help build and strengthen connections at Temple Emanu-El among members who no longer have children living at home as well as those who are simply interested in adult focused gatherings.  We offer multiple opportunities for interaction among members – come see which appeals to you!
 
What are these programs?
Each year begins with Sweets in the Sukkah and ends with a Shabbat dinner.  In between we have a Fall and Spring Social and then a variety of other interactive social events throughout the year.   Hamishim is growing and our programs receive great reviews!  As we enter our 4th year, we plan to offer programs in person, although we are keeping our very popular virtual winter travel programs. We started in November 2020, during Covid, when everything was virtual so we have come a long way! 
 
 
So, what’s next?
