Review for Jconnect Seattle, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

JConnect is the place for Jewish post-college young adults to gather, connect with each other, learn, and pray. Personally, it has been my main connection to Jewish activities since college. I would likely be less involved and informed without it. Jconnect serves a wide range of people with a variety of services. The various rabbis attempt to build relationships with the parcitipants. I have met up with Rabbi Will specifically on several occasions for coffee, and to discuss matters Jewish, outside of any official planned activity. In years when I can't make it home for high holidays or Passover, I feel very at home in the Jconnect services and events. One of the rabbis hosts monthly mid-week lunch-time learning sessions on the Microsoft campus, which I find quite informative and interesting if a little rushed. A few years ago I attended a birthright Israel trip organized by Jconnect and consisting of entirely local members (with the exception of one, who later moved here). The experience was incredible, and I now consider a number of my fellows I met on the trip to be good friends. JConnect has so much to offer, that all but the most misanthropic anti-socialite would find at least some part of it appealing. I am grateful that Seattle has such a service to offer.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The all-inclusive, non-judgemental attitude and variety of activities and ways to partipiate.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring, enthusiastic, and genuinely interested in me.
