Date My Jew Crew: Tu B’Av 2020
Aug 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

We may not be able to mingle and frolic in the field this year for Tu B’Av, the Jewish holiday of love, but a celebration is a great excuse to introduce our single friends to each other virtually.  Hear fun pitches from our community members, ask questions to our featured singles, and stick around for part 2 of the evening – connect over meaningful conversation in small groups and find a new friend or potential date.

This event is for those in theirs 20s and 30s 

Presented By: EntryPointDC and in partnership with Moishe House Northern Virginia, Columbia Heights, Capitol Hill, and Bethesda

How It Works:
Our host for the evening will introduce The Chosen Ones. The Chosen Ones (ie pitchers) will have 3 minutes to present an entertaining PowerPoint presentation or Video on why their single friend is Jewish mother approved and why some lucky person in our crowd should get to know them.

The friend being pitched will have 2 minutes to respond to Q & A sent in by the audience and asked by our host for the evening.

You will then have the chance to be paired up with your favorite wing person and a group of audience members to mingle with intention and meet a potential date or new addition to your Jew Crew.

After the event you can share who you would like to get to know better as a friend or date. If there is a mutual match, we will send you each other’s info.

Event registration is above

For decades, Jews of Color have experienced the trauma of racism both outside and inside their Jewish communities. Change is long overdue.
