Couples Club

Whether you've lived in the area for decades or just days, chances are you're looking for fun events, friends and great connections! The WHC Couples Club marries religious tradition with food, wine, and entertainment at events inside and outside Temple for couples in their 20s to 40s.

From newlyweds just starting their lives together, to busy professionals desperate to carve out some quality time with friends, to young parents looking to share a laugh after the latest "I can't believe my child just did that" moment, our events give everyone an opportunity to connect with new friends and build a community through shared interests.

This year, join us for an extravagant dessert buffet in a homemade Sukkah, casual happy hours to shed the stress of the work week, intimate "Torah for Two" gatherings, and other fun monthly and impromptu events. Led by Kim & Brian Cooper and Chris McCannell & Ven Neralla under the clergy leadership of Rabbi Joseph A. Skloot, WHC Couples Club looks forward to welcoming you! To ensure you don't miss an event, find us on Facebook and contact Marsha Humphries to join our email list.

Everything Is Illuminated — Based on the best-selling novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning and hilarious stage adaptation tells the story of a young man — also named Jonathan Safran Foer — who sets out to find the woman who might or might not have saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Accompanied by an old man haunted by memories of the war, an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Jr. Jr., and a young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English, Jonathan takes a quixotic journey into an unexpected past, where reality collides with fiction in a heart-stopping scene of extraordinary power.

After the show, join us for a drink at Le Diplomate!

This calls for a drink! Join us as we hear the inside scoop on the collapse of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign with journalist Jonathan Allen, a national political reporter at NBC News and co-author of Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign.

Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, Allen and his co-author Amie Parnes reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, the well-intentioned misfires and the hidden thorns that turned a winnable contest into a devastating loss. Drawing on the authors' deep knowledge of Hillary from their previous book, the acclaimed biography HRC, Shattered offers an object lesson in how Hillary herself made victory an uphill battle, how her difficulty articulating a vision irreparably hobbled her impact with voters, and how the campaign failed to internalize the lessons of populist fury from the hard-fought primary against Bernie Sanders.

Over food and drinks at Silver, located near Temple on Wisconsin Avenue, we'll get the inside scoop from Allen on what happened November 16, 2016.

Read the book in advance! You can purchase Shattered through the WHC Mitzvah Mall by clicking here.
