History of CBDYAG, Part II: Jews on Ice!

Phil sis ice skating

Young Adults braved the January cold spell by heading to the ice rink for an evening of schmoozing and fun. “I’m not sure if I’ve ever even ice skated before,” Jeremy recalls, “so at first I was clutching the wall as I tried to skate around the rink, afraid that I would fall. After making half a loop in what felt like 10 minutes or so, my friend Jeff taught me how to skate. I then had the courage to skate without holding onto the wall, and it was a lot of fun. I didn’t even fall!”

Phillip, who first joined the CBDYAG crew at our Ice Skating event in February of 2006, “enjoyed meeting up with friends I made from the first event I went to as well as new friends from this event. We had fun on the ice as well as conversing with everyone afterwards,” when we gathered at Stanley’s Bar, with its Tahoe lodge atmosphere.

It was a great evening for the almost 30 of us. Event organizer, Greg found it rewarding, “it was certainly a good feeling to see so many people show up and enjoy their Saturday night. This makes me want to get more involved in setting up similar events in the future.”

Greg’s not the only one voluntarily planning events for their peers. His brother, Dmitry is organizing our assistance in building a San Jose Habitat for Humanity home to be, taking place on February 25. Contact cbdyag@gmail.com or look for the evite at http://www.evite.com/app/publicUrl/cbdyag@gmail.com/habitat to join in the fun.

Our Young Adult Shir Shabbat continues on February 23, 8pm at Congregation Beth David . Once again we’ll enjoy a separate oneg after the lively Carlebachi-style Friday night service. Young Adult Shir Shabbat happens every other month on the 4th Friday of the month.

Dmitry as well as David are planning a Jewish SF adventure for March 25. We’ll meet at 11am at the Mountain View train station, enjoy kosher lunch at the SF New York (-style) Deli and tour the Contemporary Jewish Museum, before returning on the train. Please RSVP to cbdyag@gmail.com for more information and if you plan to join us so we know to look for you at the train station.

Thanks to these awesome volunteers and those working on other future events.
