Coffee Club for Parents of Our Youngest Adas Members

Tuesdays anytime from 9-11am in the Biran Beit Midrash

Drop in Tuesday mornings any time from 9-11 to meet other parents of babies. Use our Keurig to make your coffee or bring your own. Either way, you’re sure to make a new friend or run into existing ones. The cozy corner of the Beit Midrash is the place to be on Wednesday morning if you have a baby! Some of the best Adas ideas come from congregants and this gathering was suggested by new member Sharon Cohen as a way for her to meet other parents with babies. Stay for a few minutes or a few hours;we look forward to seeing you.
