'Welcome' Groups


All our social groups welcome new members. 

if you have any questions about these groups, please contact the office at

Host a new member.

The Welcome Committee seeks to create a warm and stress-free introduction to our community. In order to achieve this, we are seeking volunteers to host new members and potential members for a meal. We will send you a short questionnaire in order to try to find compatible hosts who can then be mentors/friends and introduce the new person into the wider community in a supportive way.


Apart from age, children’s ages, where you live, if you keep Kosher etc., the questionnaire will ask about your interests, politics, cultural tastes, etc. You can fill in as much or as little as you want to.


We hope to get a good response across the broad spectrum of our members so the Shidduk aspect of this endeavour will be maximized. If you wish to volunteer please and put re: Hosting” in the subject line.
