DrayMakhers May: Humor and Games

Join KlezCalifornia every month for an hour of community culture building, hosted by Evie Groch. We are blending the best of our endeavors to create a gathering of those who thrive on Jewish humor and those who enjoy being challenged by Jewish-themed games. During the first 30 minutes, we will deliver laughs at shared jokes and visual humor while the second 30 minutes will challenge your wits. Come join us for fun and challenges. Be ready to participate (with your video turned on) and to laugh! 

For the next event, May 11: come prepared with five Jewish jokes or riddles to share, and (if you like) a Jewish-themed game. Be ready to participate unmasked, with your video on, and to laugh!

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!
