MZ Small Groups are a great way to get to know a small group of people. Formed around interests, needs, geography, life stage, or profession, they can be done in the home, in an office, or anywhere in the greater Twin Cities. Some groups might focus on a topic of support, learning, or a Jewish experience. Others might be about sports, making crafts, attending arts events, and more! It’s up to you!

Consisting of anywhere between 3-18 people, groups meet regularly, with the number, frequency, dates, and location of meetings determined by the group.
