Young Couples and Families

 

Shearith Israel attracts a dynamic group of young couples and families. Our Young couples and Families group is designed to help these members connect with each other and feel at home at Shearith Israel through shabbat luncheons and other family friendly get-togethers.  To be a part of this group, please contact srosenberg@shearithisrael.org.
