PAVE: Creating Jewish Connections in your 30’s and 40’s

We are a group of Jews in our 30s and 40s (and some younger and some older – but we’re not telling!). We are single, coupled, married, expecting a first child, sending a third child to school, gay, straight, interfaith, multiracial, religious, secular, Jews by choice, and everything in between. We are open and welcoming to all Jews of all abilities, backgrounds, and histories, and those just curious about or interested in Judaism.

We are people with our own pet projects and passions and we want to share them with you, do them with you, and encourage you to do your own. Join PAVE today!

PAVE steering committee: Aaron Imlah, Alec Sullivan, Clarissa Marks, Marissa Moxley (chair), Marla Dunn, Orly Feldman

Providing a Framework for Jewish Life

PAVE facilitates Jewish life in Seattle by providing a framework for Jews in their 30s and 40s to be Jewish, do Jewish things, and meet other Jews. We provide a safe, inclusive space for all.

We know that all Jews like to eat, and that not all Jews eat the same things. All of our events are kosher or vegetarian – check the event page for details and if you have any questions or concerns, let us know! Likewise, we encourage members to embrace what Judaism means to them. This means that we will try our best to provide options to enable members to celebrate their Judaism on Shabbat and other holidays in whatever way they choose.
