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.

Hamishim In Person Shabbat Dinner

Hamishim Shabbat Dinner

Our first Hamishim Shabbat Dinner will be Friday, May 6th at 7:30pm.  Yes, in person, in Temple, following services.  Come have a bite with other Hamishimer’s, many of whom you have probably only seen on a screen.  Now you can see them in person.

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.
So, what’s next?
Our goal is to meet in person and be more social. More fun with less zoom!  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.
