Mrs. Maisel's dinner party

Get in on all the (Boston young adult) Jewishness
Awesome starts here. Join LEADS, a social, nine-session intro to Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and all the good our Greater Boston Jewish community has to offer. Hang with other young adults, meet some of Boston's committed young leaders, discuss Jewish culture and values, and meet other LEADS groups. You can register here. The cost is $36, with $18 serving as a gift to CJP's Annual Campaign, and the other $18 as a participation fee. Sessions begin on Wednesday, December 4. If you have any questions, email Nicolette.

Good eats and good company
Sign up for Wine & Dine in the Seaport, a shared community initiative with the Leifer Family Foundation, on Friday, December 6, where you can meet hundreds of other young Jews. Join one of our two services, indulge in kosher wines from around the world, and come together for a delicious dinner. We hope to see you there! Questions? Email Caleb.


Got your back

We’ve got your back

We are excited to announce we are now accepting applications for Round 1 of CJP’s Young Adult Community Grants! This is an opportunity for young adults in Greater Boston to receive funding for their programs designed to enhance Jewish life. Applicants must represent a 501c(3) organization or have a fiscal sponsor. We will have two rounds — one with decisions in December and one with decisions in April. As always, we are here to help you along the way — please feel free to reach out to Adam with any questions or for advice.

Each year, CJP helps support programs and organizations throughout our community. Here are some of this month’s events we proudly support.

I do!

“I love logistics!” said no one.
In the middle of planning a b’nai mitzvah or wedding? Don’t miss the 21st Annual Bar Mitzvah and Wedding Fall Show on Sunday, November 3 in Natick to meet dozens of vendors and leave with everything figured out for that special day.

Whisky and hummus — what more do you need?
Come to Vilna Shul’s Downtown Social Club Whisky Tasting on Thursday, November 7 in Boston. Join Joseph Hyman, a leading authority in the field, to learn the history of the alcohol, the different types of whiskies, the creation process, and how to identify a good spirit. Then, head to Vilna Shul again on Wednesday, November 13 for a hummus-making workshop with Tahaza Kitchen and Havurah on the Hill to make new friends and learn about the classic spread.
Choose your adventure
Join Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Brookline for Lounge Nights — vibrant, inspiring, and engaging evenings that offer a variety of things to do. Make art, listen to music, participate in a scotch tasting, and hear from a diverse array of dynamic speakers. Register now for the next gathering on Wednesday, November 20!


Finding courage in 5780
What are some things you didn’t do this past year, but wanted to? How will you go out of your comfort zone in the upcoming year? JewishBoston’s Ashley Jacobs asks these questions of herself and eight friends in a reflective, inspiring, and honest article.
