Ahavat Olam Community, 'Social Activities'

Congregation Ahavat Olam believes strongly that organized community activities help to strengthen our bond with each other, and within the Jewish Community and beyond. But it is not limited to worship services. We believe that FUN gatherings, also help to foster an environment of warmth, family, love, and laughter. These activities create a more relaxed environment for getting to know each other better’, and strengthen our connections to each other. So, let’s have some fun! Below are our upcoming SOCIAL ACTIVITIES.
