New Ways to Connect with IHC Circles

  • Want to find your people at IHC?
  • Want to build deeper relationships with others who share your interests, passions, and life experiences?
  • Want to experience collective effervescence — the sense of energy and harmony people feel when they come together in a group around a shared purpose?
  • Want to go from being just a member to really feeling like you belong?

Join an IHC Circle!

What are 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. Comprised of 8-15 people, groups will meet regularly with a frequency and location that works for you. Groups are lay guided and open to all congregants. With this exciting new way to connect, if a group doesn’t work out, it can disband, be tweaked, or a new idea can be tried!

IHC Circles are kicking off at Shabbat in the Park on August 6 with these inaugural groups:

Family Adventures
Global Dining Explorers
Mahjongg Mavens
Mental Health Professionals/Therapists
Take a Hike … Together
Young Couples Circle

Or consider forming an IHC Circle yourself. The Engagement Team will work with you and, together with Rabbi Jordana Chernow-Reader, will guide you through the process of designing your new group. All new IHC Circle guides will be offered training, one-on-one support, and (if relevant) easy-to-use discussion materials. To get started, contact Rabbi Jordana.
