Panim el Panim is an opportunity to deeply connect in a small group with meaningful conversations. Through engaged, active listening & experiential life-learning, we will nourish our souls Face to Face, not face to screen.


                    When was the last time you had a truly meaningful conversation?


Temple Beth Sholom’s Small Groups Initiative

Launching January 2019



Why Small Groups


Rabbi Pomerantz's Vision

Why Participate


In Panim el Panim you will meet new people, forge new relationships both within the group context and, potentially, beyond, while having a safe space to be yourself and share from a place of honesty, curiosity, warmth, and even playfulness. Panim el Panim is not book learning but, rather, life-learning as we open up and learn about ourselves in relationship with others, building character in the process.


What Happens When I Join?


Joining a group is a commitment. Our inaugural year participants will commit to attending 5 times, monthly, January - May 2019, on dates that will be determined in conjunction with your group leader. There is no commitment beyond that. For those who choose, they can recommit for Fall 2019 – May 2020, either staying in the same group or trying out a different group.


Types of Groups


Most groups will be stage of life and geography based, with occasional availability based groups and, as our initiative evolves, leaving the potential to expand to interest based groups.


The following groups currently have openings:


  • Bay Point Neighborhood
  • 40s – 50s (All Genders)
  • SINKs & DINKs (Single/Dual income, no kids)
  • Husbands with Young Children
  • Parents 40s & 50s (All Genders)
  • Women (All Ages)
  • Couples (Empty Nesters and Older)
