DrayMakhers: Play Games with a Jewish Slant, in January

Join KlezCalifornia every month 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 the next event, January 12: Have you ever played Jewish Twenty Questions? Jewish Pictionary? Jewish word puzzles? Jewish multiple choice games? Are you brave enough to give it a try? Please join us to play games that highlight Jewish people, real or fictitious. Bring your own games to share with us!  We had a great time with this theme in June and October!

If you have any questions: contact coordinator Evie Groch.

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!
