Cheese, Cheers, and Celebration

Brews & Schmooze: First Thursdays at the JMM
June 7, 6-9pm

Each spring the Jewish community celebrates Shavuot, the holiday commemorating God giving His people the Torah, with a feast of dairy. While the origins of this tradition are unclear, we at the JMM are sure about one thing- cheese is delicious.  Join us for a cheese-making demonstration by Kayam Farms, a kosher wine tasting, and a talk about the history and meaning behind Shavuout.

If you haven’t been to a Brews and Schmooze event, you’ve really been missing out. Last month’s Brews & Schmooze was a great time!

We decorated spice boxes...

Headed out to the future site of the Exeter Community Garden to hear from Project Manager Hasdai Westbrook and Master Gardener Jason Reed...

Played some awesome Pineapple Bowling with neighborhood kids...

And enjoyed refreshing "mocktails" and some herb plants to take home and start our own gardens!

And looking a little farther back…

In February the JMM became a coffee house, complete with live music, card games and a variety of warming beverages.

In March we got ready for Purim, putting together Shalacht Manot (traditional gift baskets) and created Prohibition-themed costume accessories for Purim Pandemonium.

April saw the introduction of IRON CHEF: Passover! The competition was fierce!

Free Admission/ Light Refreshments/ Alcohol Provided for Purchase. Cheese, Cheers, and Celebration is part of our new young adult series Brews and Schmooze. Brews and Schmooze is a happy hour series, you are welcome to come as you please and participate as you like.
