20s to 30s

Young adults form a vital part of Jewish communities; however it can sometimes feel hard to find what you are looking for within synagogue life. At EDRS, we have created a friendly and vibrant group to provide a space to meet others, socialize, eat, drink, learn and/or unwind after the busy lives we all lead. EDRS 20s&30s meet every month for either a Friday Night dinner or a social night out and whether you are single or part of a couple, everyone is always welcome.
