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.
