Yedidim means “friends” in Hebrew, and if you’re looking for new friends to help you through the joyful mess of raising Jewish children in New Hampshire, then this is the group for you!  Together we have formed a young family group for families of all types:  Jewish, interfaith, not originally born Jewish - all are welcome at Yedidim.  If you have children between the ages of newly minted and eight years old, please join us! Given the exciting programming we have planned for the coming year, there will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer or host an event!  You can reach Jessie Mocle, Family Engagement and Yedidim Director, with any questions or comments:

DNO - Dads’ Night Out!
Get out of the house and have fun, Dads!  Take a hike with other fathers, without having to carry the child with the boo-boo foot two miles in the staggering heat.  Get your lucky Pats jersey ready, and chill with dad dudes at Boston Billiard Club.  Have a game night with friends who also appreciate not having to fish legos out of the baby’s mouth every time your back is turned.
