What is B'nai Torah Bridges? B'nai Torah Bridges is our new small group initiative designed to help members connect with others who share a certain passion or are looking for support for a specific need. We are looking for individuals who are interested in leading a small group. We are also looking for ideas of small groups in which you'd want to participate. Please contact Ashley Cohen, Director of Engagement and Outreach or Joel Miller, Engagement Committee Chair, for more information. B'nai Torah Bridges small groups will launch in January, but we are filling spots now!

What kind of groups does B'nai Torah Bridges include? B'nai Torah Bridges small groups are split into three categories: Social Groups, Support Groups and Discussion and Learning Groups. Click on each category to see a complete listing of the small groups offered.

How can I join/start a group? Click here to complete an interest form! Once you complete the form, a member of our Engagement Team will contact you with more information and opportunities.

What is expected of group leaders? Group leaders schedule and organize 6-8 meet-ups throughout the year. The leaders are responsible for communication with group members as well as with the B'nai Torah Engagement Team. Group leaders will ensure that their group remains a safe and respectful space for members while upholding B'nai Torah's Jewish values.
