Young Adult Group

Temple Emanuel has a thriving young adult group for those in their 20s, 30s, and 40s called “The After Party,” led by Engagement Associate, Shelby Denhof and Cantor David Fair. Once a month, young adults are invited to attend a Friday night worship service and afterward, attend a social event at a young adult’s home or at a local establishment. Shelby hosts a brief discussion on a Jewish topic affecting young people, the Cantor leads Kiddush and Hamotzi, and then we eat!

 This group’s purpose is to develop and build community among Jewish young adults in Grand Rapids.
We are delighted that our group includes people of all walks of life. We include those of other faith traditions who are partnered or married to Jews. We welcome those of other faith traditions who are simply visitors. We also welcome those who are curious to learn more about Judaism and may consider conversion at some point.
