Many of us often reminisce about the old days, when our parents (in our case, our fathers) would routinely get together with their friends and neighbors over breakfast, to schmooze and in many cases, to share bad Jewish jokes. We hope to capture a bit of that vibe today, as well as providing an ideal way to meet and connect with others within the temple community.
Jon Strauss and Phil Goldman will begin by collecting a master list of men that are interested in taking part, hoping to span the temple’s broadest range in terms of geography, age, and interests. Using that list, they will periodically (every 2-3 mos.) create and send out a listing of multiple, random “small groups” having 5 or 6 guys each. The first named guy in each group will take the lead on organizing their respective group over that period, finding a time and place to have a breakfast, lunch, or even an afternoon beer or evening scotch. The specifics of each (one time only) gathering will be up to the group, and will be “dutch treat”, with no required timing or location, and no obligation or agenda other than to have fun, and get to know each other.
The following 2-3 month period will have new groups, new gatherings, and quite likely, the same old jokes.

Past Group Events
Beer and brats – 6 pm Waldmann Brewery & Wurstery, 445 Smith Ave, St Paul
Call or email Phil Goldman for further details if you would like to join us.
Waldmann Brewery (a block or two off the north end of the St Paul High Bridge) will again be hosting patrons on their (heat lamp and fireplace heated) patio for the next two Saturdays, from 5-8pm. See attached photos from this past weekend. I checked it out this past weekend with a half liter, brat and spatzel of my own (what i won’t do for the Noshers) and it was quite comfortable even at 9 degrees and snowing. This coming Saturday promises to be as good or better. Let me know if you can make it and if we can get critical mass (i.e., me and someone else) we’ll consider it a go! Proof of vaccination or negative Covid test with 24 hours required. (and well behaved dogs are welcome on the patio!)
