Introducing Chuggim (“Who-geem”)! 
Craving online or socially distant events with other Jews in an inclusive atmosphere? Our Chuggim (from the Hebrew word meaning circle) are social circles centered around interests. Each chug is hosted by and for members of Temple Emanu-El and Congregation Or Chadash. Email the contact person for the chug you are interested in to get a Zoom link for the interest meeting.
“What’s an interest meeting?” A one-time meeting at which the chug decides on a regular time and structure so the fun can begin! Can’t come due to scheduling? Contact us anyway -- we want your opinion and participation! Each chug will be capped in size so as to encourage community, so email us soon! Have an interest that is not listed?  Let us know!

Fun with Food

Interest Meeting Tues, Sept 15 @ 10am

FOOD! Who doesn’t love food; the smell, the taste sometimes the feel, exploring new recipes, or experimenting with spices? We will meet monthly on Zoom to share recipes, successes, photos, etc. Do you have a favorite recipe for fall harvest vegetables? An idea for a theme?

Writers Sharing Chug

Interest Meeting Mon, Sept 14 @ 5pm

This is an opportunity to share our Jewish writing in a supportive atmosphere.  The format will be taking turns in a circle, in spite of the zoom squares.  We may  go around more than once.  We can discuss options for sharing long pieces.  The jobs of facilitator and timekeeper will be rotated.   We can meet monthly, subject to review.  Ten seats are available.

Photography Club

Interest Meeting Wednes, Sept 16 @ 8pm

This group can grow and develop organically depending on member interests. Haven’t picked up that great camera hiding in the closet? Are you an advanced amateur out storm chasing on a regular basis? Let’s get together and share ideas and techniques (including editing, printing, accessories, etc)  while enjoying the camaraderie of our community.

Interest Meeting Sun, Sept 13 @ 5pm

Wondering how to shop at a thrift store without being overwhelmed? Where to get discounts (Senior, Teacher, Military, etc) or the best jewelry? Need something specific like an omelet pan, yarn, books, DVDs, handbags, yard art or brand name clothing?  Reticent to venture out? Just let me know what you’re looking for, and I’m sure I’ll find it sooner or later on one of my trips.
