Find Your Community
with IHC Circles

IHC Circles are small groups formed around interests, geography, life stage, or profession. They can meet in the home, in an office, outside, inside, or really anywhere!

You can read about our current Circles below.
You can click the Circle leader(s) name to contact them for additional information.

Have an idea for a new Circle? Reach out to Rabbi Chernow-Reader, Amy Isaacs, or Patti Freeman Dorson to receive
an IHC Circle guide to get started.

Global Dining Explorers

The local restaurant scene continues to grow and diversify with new dining opportunities
every week. Together with fellow IHC foodies and chowhounds, whet your appetite and
explore the many cuisines, tastes, spices, and choices that make Greater Indianapolis an up-and-coming food destination.

Circle leaders: Steven & Nicole Kofkoff

Mahjong Mavens

Grab your tile set and play a game or ten with the other IHC mahjong mavens. This addicting game of skill, strategy, and luck is a great way to spend an afternoon with other IHC enthusiasts.

Circle leader: Amy Isaacs

Mental Health Professionals

Helping others better understand and cope with thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can take
a toll on you. Though not intended as a clinical support group, gather with other IHC mental health providers to share opportunities and challenges and consider how Jewish wisdom and values find their way into your practice.

Circle Leader: Laurie Freeman

Take A Hike...Together

Get outside with a diverse group of fellow IHC members who enjoy sharing their love for
exploring the Hoosier landscape and the change of seasons. You’ll find experienced hikers and those who are new to hiking; young and finely aged; single and coupled; fair-weather hikers and all-weather hikers.
And best of all, the fresh air is mixed generously with conversation and friendship.

Circle Leaders: Louise & Stuart Abramson

Young Couples

Married or not, being a couple doesn’t mean you stop wanting to have fun or meet more fun
new IHC people! Break from the norm and have some fun! We’ll check out some new
spots, some old spots, some home spots, some active activities and some not-so active
activities! Both the young and young at heart are welcome. Read about our next event here.

Circle Leaders: Andrew Lodolo & Josh Lodolo

Young Family Adventure

It’s time to get out of the house with your young children and have some fun with other
IHC families. Bring your kids to a park, a museum, a playground, or a backyard and let
them go bananas while you hang out with fellow parents.
