Welcome to Beth Tzedec Small Groups!

Registration is now open.

We are excited for year three of our Beth Tzedec Small Groups initiative.

As we are itching to reconnect with old friends and develop new caring relationships, Beth Tzedec Small Groups are an opportunity to connect with other Beth Tzedec members over a shared goal, project or interest.



BT Small Groups consist of  8 to 15 people meeting on Zoom or in person from October to June to discuss a topic or engage in an activity that is of particular interest to YOU.


Led by a fellow Beth Tzedec member, BT Small Groups are made up of mostly BT members. Group members are asked to commit to attending regularly. 


Some groups will meet over Zoom, others will plan to meet in person, while some will be hybrid (at times in person and at times on Zoom). Check the description carefully to see the leader’s plan.


To learn, laugh and develop meaningful relationships that deepen connections to other members, to Judaism and to Beth Tzedec while engaging in activities that are important to YOU.


Member registration opens on September 19, with non-member registration opening on September 30. Group Leaders and members will schedule the exact meeting dates together. Most groups will meet monthly from October to June, while others may meet more regularly. See individual group descriptions which will detail the day/time and frequency of group meetings. Small Groups registration closes on October 12.
