Events: Connect with Us

Whether you’re part of an interfaith couple, raising kids in an interfaith home, a grandparent in an interfaith family or a Jewish professional, we’ve got events just for you.

We are happy to announce that select 18Doors events will return for in-person gatherings. We are adhering to local state guidelines and will be prioritizing the safety of both our staff and all participants. We will now specify clearly in each event listing if the event will take place in-person or online via Zoom. You can find the safety guidelines on the registration page for each event. See below for all the virtual events we’re hosting for couples, parents, grandparents, and professionals. We hope to see you in person again soon!

If you want to connect with someone in your local community, check out our 18Doors Local offerings here.

Couples and Canoes: High Holy Day Reflections on the Charles River (Boston)

September 18 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Grab a canoe or kayak and (th)ROW those sins away! The High Holy Days are a time to release the weight of the year that is now behind us. Join 18Doors and Modern JewISH Couples for a tashlich ritual where we will symbolically cast our sins into a body of flowing water. Prefer to stay on solid ground? Join Rabbi Gubitz to do tashlich from the dock, then we'll head over to a nearby bar.

Rosh Hashanah Picnic (and Tashlich, Too!) (Atlanta)

September 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Rosh Hashanah will be here before you know it, and this year we're celebrating in a park. Join us for tashlich followed by a community potluck dinner. Tashlich is a holiday ritual during which we symbolically cast away (into the water) bad habits and places where we’ve missed the mark so that we don't carry them into the new year. Join Rabbis Malka Packer-Monroe from 18Doors and Ariel Root Wolpe from Maalot as they lead us in this powerful ritual. Family-friendly and open to Jews and their loved ones of all ages.
