The goal of the Young Men’s Group is to create a venue for engaging Jewish men in our community between their mid-twenties and mid-forties. This group will function in some ways as an outreach effort, with fun social activities, networking opportunities, and low-barrier events designed to attract young Jewish men in the community, many of whom are not affiliated or involved.  The group will also have an educational component, with programming planned to teach members about the needs in our community, the ways that the Federation and its agencies impact the needs locally and internationally, and opportunities for leadership involvement that make a difference in our community. Contact Bryan Pisetsky at 577-9393 for more information
