JYA Young Adults 21-35

Young Adults 21-35

The Merage JCC introduces Young Adult Programming to meet the needs of our members age 21-35.

We are bringing young professionals (ages 21-35) together to create a growing network of people through a range of events… from social bar nights, trivia and game nights, sporting activities, hikes, Shabbat potlucks, Vegas trips, and more.

After all, fellow Jews getting together makes it a Jewish event!  Events will be open to the whole community, as we want to engage young Jews in OC who are not currently involved in anything Jewish or may want to be involved in something more suited to their interests.
