Mekusharim friendsWelcome to Connections, a group which provides social, Judaic and learning experiences in a variety of formats for the entire BJ community.

Our range of exciting and innovative programs includes many that are targeted to our adult community as well as some that are inter-generational.  All our events are intended to create meaningful opportunities for people to gather for learning and enjoyment.  We sponsor large events as well as smaller group events that allow for closer, more intimate get-togethers and community-building.

Committee Chair: Ellen Metzger
