DrayMakhers, a new KlezCalifornia online social event

Join KlezCalifornia for an hour of community culture building with
Jewish laughter and humor,
food and recipes, and
thinking peoples’ games
on a three-month cycle. For this first event, come prepared with five Jewish jokes and/or riddles to share while you enjoy the jokes and riddles of others.

The following month, May 5, come prepared to introduce and share about five of your favorite Jewish recipes and/or show us how you make them. If you submit recipes ahead of time, we will screen share them and (if you like) distribute them. In the third month, June 9, come prepared to play games which highlight Jewish people, real or fictitious, and suggest games you know of that we may play. The cycle will continue month after month!

Definition: In a cultural community like ours, we find lots of gantze makhers, (“big shots”; gantse = complete/entire; makhers = big shots, fixers). If we sort ourselves into three specific groups that offer a mixture of laughter, appreciation of cuisine, and playtime, we come up with DrayMakhers (dray = three). What a mekhaye (pleasure/delight) to be part of the DrayMakhers!

If you have any questions: contact coordinator Evie Groch.
