Each service is developed by and for young adults in their 20s and 30s, and each service has its own flair!

Interested in joining a neighborhood community for Shabbat? Want to meet more people?
Portland Young Adult Shabbat is organizing a new program called Shabbat Clusters this fall/ winter! Shabbat Clusters are peer-led, in home Shabbat potluck gatherings.
People from throughout Portland will sign up and be organized into groups of 8-12 people based on age, locations, dietary needs/level of kashrut. After a big kick off dinner October 11th, members will be responsible for hosting potluck Shabbat meals 4-6 times in the next 6 months. A new round of Shabbat Clusters will start in the spring.
Don’t wait to reserve your spot using this quick online form.
Please sign up by October 9th to receive details about the October 11th kickoff! (Attendance on the 11th is not required.)
