Federation nosh for newcomers, networking

The Federation’s repurposed conference room – now called the Community Room – includes this homey spot. The Federation’s repurposed conference room – now called the Community Room – includes this homey spot. A Newcomer Nosh, for those who are new to the local Jewish community as well as anyone else who just wants to drop by and schmooze, will be hosted by the Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco Counties on Sunday, Aug. 26 from 9:30-11 a.m.

The event will be held in the Federation’s new community room. The space in the back of the Federation’s offices used to serve as a conference room, but has been transformed into a more user friendly space with flexible tables and chairs and a comfy couch for more relaxed conversations. It is expected to become a gathering spot for a variety of community activities.

The event is not only a chance for folks to sip coffee and nosh on bagels, but it will offer an opportunity to learn more about the Jewish community and particularly the many programs offered by the Federation. Executive Director Emilie Socash, other members of the Federation staff and board members will be on hand to chat and answer any questions.

“There is an emphasis on being a ‘newcomer,’ but ultimately, whether you are new to the area or just looking to network and get more involved in our Jewish com- munity, this event would be perfect for you,” said Federation board member Ezra Singer.

“We learned from the Federation’s 2017 Demographic Study that we need to improve our visibility,” he said, “This will be an opportunity to personally introduce ourselves and the Federation to those new to the community and educate them as to what exactly we do and what we can offer to residents of Pinellas and Pasco Counties.”

Community members are welcome to stop by any time during the Newcomer’s Nosh. The Federation office is located at 13191 Starkey Road, Suite 8, Largo in the Crownpointe office complex.

Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to
