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.

We have been inviting you to participate in our not-so-new-anymore Hamishim program. Since November, many of you have participated and have told us how much you enjoyed the programs! Yay! And thank you! We worked hard to help build and strengthen connections at Temple Emanu-El, by offering multiple opportunities for interaction among members who no longer have children living at home as well as those who are simply interested in adult focused small group gatherings.
What were these programs?
Since November 2020 , we have offered 22 zoom programs which had over 300 participants. Members came together over a variety of common interests to interact and learn something new. We hope you were one of them.
Darn, I missed them.
No worries, there is one more. It’s travel focused ‘cause we know that is what you enjoyed the most. Sign up below.  Go ahead and give it a try, especially if you haven’t yet tried one.
Done with Zoom?
So are we. This Sunday is our last Zoom program, for now. We asked via multiple surveys and know you enjoyed the programs, now it’s time for the next phase. Less Zoom, more face to face – maybe even without masks.
So, what’s next?
Our goal is to meet in person and be more social. More fun with less zoom! Plans are in the early stages and we hope to bring you new programs soon. If you would like to see Hamishim grow, please reach out to Jason SilberfeinJackie Grussgott or email hamishim@tewnj.org. Share your thoughts, ideas or just let us know you would like Hamishim to continue.
