Social Circles Pic No1

Friendships are kindled here.
Everyone is welcome.

Social circles naturally and dynamically form around special interests (sports, music, etc.) and age groups. Events that gain wide enthusiasm become annual events, and some events are impromptu.
Join in to share the fun!

Fun at School

Many of our families have children in Small Wonders at Temple Judea (our pre-school), and many families have children in our Religious School. Classroom and school-wide activities are frequent throughout the year, which provides our kids both educational growth and enjoyable friendship experiences.

Parents (and grandparents and uncles and aunts) are encouraged to participate with their kids in many of these activities.

Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends is open to all members, both men and women, of any age; however, the group’s social events are designed to appeal primarily to empty nesters and active seniors. The club plans its own parties and travel.

Men’s Club

Our Men’s Club hosts varied activities of interest to men. Members also join together to assist with broader synagogue activities such as cooking and serving at our annual Pancake Breakfast, building our sukkah, assisting in rummage sale set-up and breakdown, bar-tending at social events, and more.


Every woman 18 and older, who is a member of Temple Judea or has a child in Small Wonders, is automatically a member of Sisterhood. We enjoy social events such as BUNCO, spa afternoons, book club discussions, museum trips and other activities.

Our Sisterhood also organizes our annual Rummage Sale. This popular event, which draws shoppers from around the local region, benefits Temple Judea as well as many other local charitable organizations. The huge sale draws together temple members of all ages, who volunteer their time to make the sale successful year after year.

Rosh Chodesh

Temple Judea’s Rosh Chodesh group is a study and social gathering for women that meets on or near the date of the new moon each month. Our meetings are typically held in the homes of congregants who serve as hosts. Each meeting features a vegetarian potluck dinner, a short service, and a member-led program of Jewish learning.

New members are always welcome to join this friendly group. All adult women who are members of Temple Judea are welcome to attend our meetings.

To find out the location and other details for upcoming Rosh Chodesh meetings, please email Newsletter Editor Gail Snyder at gailsnyder17@gmail.com or call Nancy at the temple office at 215-348-5022.

Empty Nesters

Empty Nesters is a friendly, social gathering of parents whose kids are old enough to be at college but not so old as to make them grandparents yet. This group usually meets in a member's home for casual conversation and discussions.

League of Our Own

League of Our Own is a group of warm, active and friendly seniors. The group sponsors monthly programs, usually with a guest speaker or other entertainment. The League also runs a Book Club and a Movie Club, and plans a variety of interesting trips.
