Thanks for coming out to our April Happy Hour, this time at PSB! It was great getting to meet so many new faces, and there was lots of turnout from JGAPers who have also attended past events. We hope to see you at our May Happy Hour (details to come). As always, your first round of drinks is paid for by the Princeton CJL, and you are always welcome to bring family and friends!
If you have any questions or comments, please email .

Our kosher for Passover matzah pizza party was a huge success, with 16 JGAPers in attendance, and lots of new faces! We certainly ate like we just escaped slavery! A huge thanks to Aaron Attermann and Sloane Frost for their incredible pizza– and brei-making skills, and thanks to Aaron A. for hosting this event at his apartment. Thanks to everyone who made it out tonight!
We had matzah brei with maple syrup, margarine, and mango and strawberry jams. We also had delicious matzah pizzas with toppings varying from green peppers, onions and mushrooms to sun-dried tomatoes and even pineapple! Who knew matzah could taste this good?? Our attendees brought more wine than we could consume, salad, chocolate, and a number of other desserts. Thanks Jean for the incredibly delicious homemade kosher for Passover cake!
Stay tuned for more upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you all again, soon, and seeing more new faces in the future! As always, email if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for future events. Chag sameach, and enjoy the rest of the holiday.
Chag sameach! We hope everyone enjoyed their Passover Seders, whether they spent them with family and friends or at the Princeton CJL. We had tons of people at the Princeton CJL seders, and there were lots of different fun themes. The chocolate seder on Tuesday night was particularly delicious.
To keep in mind for next year, seders are free for graduate students (with a Princeton ID), and $18 for young professionals, which is very reasonable for the amount of food you’ll be eating. As with all other JGAP and CJL events, you are welcome to bring family and friends, but you must remember to register everyone.
We had a great time this Sunday, starting with brunch at the nearby Princetonian Diner on Route 1 South! Around seven people made it for brunch, and most of us headed over to the indoor ice skating rink at Mercer County Park for the afternoon, where a few more JGAPers met up with us. Skating was a blast! More pictures will be posted on our Facebook group soon. A few of us had never ice skated before, and in a few hours we were all making it around the rink. Super fun!
Thanks to those who were able to make it out, and we look forward to seeing you again! Stay tuned for other winter events, and as always, email with any questions or comments.
Everyone had a great time at our first-ever JGAPbowling event! We meet lots of new people, and lots of people showed interest in repeating this event soon, so stay tuned to hear about more upcoming events. If you have suggestions for events you’d like to help plan or want to see happen, as always, shoot an email. We'd love to see you at one of our future events!
When: PASSED(Friday, December 28, 2013 from 6:30 - 10:30pm) Where: Jean Dietz’s house (email for address)
Yet another successful JGAP potluck Shabbat dinner! Thanks to Jean for hosting; everyone had a great time. About ten people were there, all young professionals from the area (since Princeton graduate students were on winter break). We met a few new people, and several of our regulars were also able to make it. Remember — always feel free to attend any of our events, and bring family and friends with you!
We held reform services followed by a delicious milchig meal of vegetarian lasagna. Attendees contributed kosher desserts, wine, and kasha, and Sloane’s homemade challah was a huge hit, as usual. We look forward to hosting our next JGAP Shabbat dinner, and more information on that will appear here as it becomes available. Shabbat Shalom, JGAP!
When: PASSED(Thursday, December 13, 2012 from 8:00 — 11:30pm) Where: Abby Cohen’s house (email for address)
We had an awesome time at our first ever Hanukkah Board Game Night. There were about 15 attendees throughout the night. Thanks to Abby Cohen for hosting and making latkes, cinnamon twists and cookies! Everything was delicious, and we had lots of fun meeting so many new people, eating, playing games, and lighting candles. Thanks to everyone else who came and brought games and snacks. We played Apples to Apples (Jewish Edition), and are looking forward to our next game night once the new semester starts. Stay tuned for more upcoming events, and as always, email if you're willing to host an event, or have an idea for a future event.
Thanks to everyone who made it to our monthly happy hour! We had a blast and saw several new faces. Thanks also to those who were able to donate non-perishable food, first-aid, and toiletry items to the Princeton University and Princeton CJL’s Hurricane Sandy supply drive. All support is greatly appreciated.
As always, the first round of drinks at our JGAP happy hours is covered by the Princeton CJL. Stay tuned for announcements for upcoming happy hours.
We hope you enjoyed our first-ever JGAP hiking trip at the Sourland Mountain Preserve! The weather and fall colors were beautiful. Not as many people were able to make it as we had hoped for, so we’d appreciate suggestions for future outdoor events! If you have any event suggestions, as always, feel free to email . We look forward to next time, and thanks to those who were able to make it!
When: PASSED Friday, October 5, 2012 from 8:30 — 10:00pm (Part 1: Taxes & Charity) Friday, October 12, 2012 from 8:30 — 10:00pm (Part 2: Environment) Friday, October 19, 2012 from 8:30 — 10:00pm (Part 3: Foreign Policy) Where: Upstairs in the CJL Library at 70 Washington Road, Princeton, NJ
Thanks for sticking around after Shabbat dinner on the past few Friday nights for our 3-part JGAP learning series with Rabbi Sara Rich: “A Jewish Look at the 2012 Presidential Elections.” Our topics were (Oct. 5) taxes and charity, (Oct. 12) the environment, and (Oct. 19) foreign policy. We read Jewish sources on these topics, and took a glance at Obama’s and Romney’s platforms to see how their views compared.
As with all of our events, all JGAPers are welcome, regardless of religious or political views. This education series has been a chance to learn more about the Jewish perspective on the big issues of this year’s election. Stay tuned for information regarding our Spring 2013 education series. If you have ideas for a JGAP class you’d be interested in taking or event suggestions in general, send us an email at .
