Last night, I led a discussion with over a dozen young adults (20s-30s) in Costa Mesa to hear their ideas about what they are interested in doing for Jewish learning opportunities. Suggestions from participants included topics, locations, and events to do. It was a nice opportunity for them to have their voices heard as well as to meet other young Jews in the area.
The event, “Cocktails & Conversation” was the second such event of its kind; the first one took place in Long Beach in February, while this one took place in central Orange County. Cocktails were also offered, largely using the leftover spirits from the “Texts & Tasting” series over the past two years.
In addition to this event helping to provide fodder for re-booting my young adult efforts this fall, I am also seeking to re-brand them.
