PAVE: Creating Jewish Connections in Your 30s and 40s

PAVE facilitates Jewish life in Seattle by providing a framework for Jews in their 30s and 40s (some younger and some older – but we’re not telling!) to be Jewish, do Jewish things, and meet other Jews. We provide a safe, inclusive space for all. 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.
