How can people of Jewish heritage meet others of like mind when they are new to a city? That is, without the trappings of organized RELIGIOUS worship, etc.
We are an adult married couple, with adult children, so we aren't interested in the dating game (singles have their own websites and places to meet for dating). It would be nice to identify and share with others that probably feel as we do.
As we are new to an area, where there are certainly many Jews, and there are two synagogues (one a Reconstructionist and one a Chabad), neither would fill our need without participating in their ceremonies and rituals. And we don't subscribe to either ones motivation although they are indeed in the recruiting mode.
We are not interested in religious worshiping and we know that over half the Jews in America feel the same way. Yet we have similar backgrounds that are fun to recall. Individually, and collectively, we can all enjoy the good-feeling of being an American of Jewish heritage and culture, without the mishagash of religion.
Is there a way to find and meet other Jews who would like to befriend each other and share our common heritage (without ceremony).
Is this possible?
