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.
