    Jews’ Next Dor Meet & Greets are monthly on the second Wednesday of the month.

  • Sunday, February 22, 11am, Wunderlich Park Hike ‘n’ Stroll and Beer with Kol Emeth Young Adults

    11am. Wunderlich Park, 4040 Woodside Road, Woodside.

    11:15 sharp. Hike takes off. Don’t be late.

    1pm. Alice’s Restaurant, 17288 Skyline Blvd, Woodside. (Rain cancels the hike but not Alice’s.)

    Jews’ Next Dor, the young adult group of Congregation Beth David (Saratoga) and the young adult group of Congregation Kol Emeth (Palo Alto) are going for an 90 minute easy hike and stroll in Wunderlich Park, followed by conversation and beers at Alice’s Restaurant. No, not that Alice’s Restaurant, but just as much fun. Alice’s is the kind of establishment that attracts biker gangs, yuppies, and granola crunchies alike. It’s a biker place with bruschetta on the menu. Wunderlich Park features redwood forest, open meadows, beautiful oaks and madrones. The trail is hilly but not really steep, and we’ll hike at a pace that is mellow, groovy, and conducive to conversation. Event covers 5 miles, with 600 feet of elevation. Admit it. You want to get out. The woods are beautiful, and the air smells great. Hiking boots and a bottle of water recommended but sneakers okay. We’ll have a few extra water bottles in case you forget yours. RSVP to jewsnextdor[at]gmail.com.

    Directions: To reach Wunderlich Park, take Woodside Rd. (Hwy 84 West) exit from I-280. Go 2.7 miles west towards the hills. Look for the small brown entrance sign on your right. This sign is easy to miss, so note your odometer at I-280. When you get to the parking lot, look for the guy with the clipboard. Parking is free but can be tight, so carpooling is encouraged. After the walk, come for beer, silliness, and good conversation at Alice’s Restaurant, just up the road at the intersection of Hwy 84 and Hwy 35 (Skyline Blvd).

  • Friday, February 27, 6:30pm, Young Adult Shir Shabbat and Potluck

    It’s time for Young Adult Shir Shabbat, but with a few twists. Shir Shabbat will now be at 6:30pm. Young Adults will have a potluck Shabbat dinner together in room one following the service. Please bring a vegetarian or dairy dish to share. Please note there will be no way for it to be kept warm, or to warm it up. Please include the type of food you’re bringing in your RSVP. Drop off your potluck dish in room 1 then head over to sanctuary to join with the congregation for a lively Shabbat service. Shir Shabbat is an upbeat and joyous Friday evening service (held every 4th Friday) welcoming in Shabbat, complete with Carlebach melodies, dancing and instruments. After the service, young adults will head back to room room for a separate kiddush, potluck dinner and a chance to unwind and celebrate Shabbat. R SVPs appreciated to jewsnextdor[at]gmail.com.
