Nearly two dozen people noshed on bagels and lox, fruit, and coffee cake on Sunday morning, Aug. 26 at a Newcomer Nosh hosted by the Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco Counties.

Held in the Federation’s newly appointed Community Room, several couples, one infant, and a few singles who are new to the area or just new to Federation chatted, played some Jewish geography and learned more about the community and each other.

“As a relatively new resident in the area, I found the warmth and connection to others to be very enjoyable,” said Linda Weiss, a third-year transplant to the area from South Florida. “It is terrific to have this opportunity to know more about the Jewish community and to meet new people – one couple who just moved here two weeks prior.”


A display of information about the local Jewish community was set up for the Newcomer Nosh. A display of information about the local Jewish community was set up for the Newcomer Nosh. Maxine Kaufman, Federation’s director of arts, culture, and education, expressed her delight at seeing new faces around the table “from all demographics. We are trying to reach out to the entire gamut of the community – infants to seniors.”

Another Nosh is planned for Sunday, Jan. 27. Stay tuned for more details. Anyone interested in learning more about the Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco Counties, should contact the organization at info@jewishpinellas.org or (727) 530-3223.
