Are you interested in exploring and creating diverse community? In a Jewish context? Volunteering together, talking politics, arguing philosophy? Maybe even a hike (urban or otherwise)? Exploring LA together and having FUN? Come join in!
Tired of the bar scene and big, intimidating events? Want to make easier connections? Then Jewish Meeting Place is for you! Aimed at creating a dynamic, vibrant interactive, and collaborative community of friends.
The general rule of thumb is if you would call yourself Jewish, . . . then you are Jewish enough to be here. Of if you for some reason have an affinity towards members of the tribe, . . . you are welcome too. We do not restrict by origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, shoe size, etc . . . In other words, . . . all are welcome.
As for events, . . . any event that offers the opportunity for quality social interaction is good, and please, . . . suggest or offer to host if you have an idea.
We might have more intimate events, such as game nights, mixers, day trips, and more. Events without the pressure! Come join the fun.
Clear face pic required of all members. Contact Organizers if this is an issue for you.
Lastly, . . . this meetup does try and collaborate. Often what is here is also shared to other meetups.
The mission of this group is its name.
Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.
There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met. (William Butler Yeats )
EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!
This is a place where everyone can just come as they are, and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. We are not limited, restricted or exclusive by age, gender, gender preference, national origin, relationship status, etc. To put it more simply this group is open to all. All ages, all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - And that includes you!!!
There are plenty of meetups that exclude based of one reason or another. Or there plenty meetups where people self segregate. This meetup is neither of those. Diversity is coveted here. People are not monochrome and neither are we. You will fit in perfectly and find a lot of folks who just like you in certain aspect, and differ from you in others. It's the good kind of variety of life.
Some events on this group may specify limits at times. Those will be clearly noted when needed. At times they may be age delineated, or even gender related. Limits are placed often as a means to control size. The event can then be repeated/recycled with a different limit range. If there is an event you really wish to go to with a limit, . . . please contact me. You can be the impetus and the catalyst for the next event in the different limit/range. Other times the limit can be waived or bent as needed.
Challenge yourself and importantly, BE yourself and expand your horizons and comfort zone. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded and be non-judgmental. The group is based off quality events to bring people together from positive social interaction. Anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional, wild-at-heart side of Los Angeles is welcome!
In the interest of making events successful . . . I will spread events across other meetup groups to bump up attendance. For as you know, . . . sometimes people don't show up. Some Organizers get really bent out of shape about that. I do however know that life happens. Even if it's 10 mins before the event. Just change your rsvp. No worries. No harm-no foul. There is not any sort strikes or penalty system, and there is nobody keeping score. The exception will be if it is listed as a "no flake" event. On those you
