  1. Wonderful to know about this organization. My husband and I are building a small house n Coupeville and will be spending at least some amounts of time here on Whidbey. Masal Tov and Todah for your work here.

  2. Hi, My family and I just arrived in Coupeville yesterday. We moved here from Homer, Alaska. We have three kids, 4, 3, 1. We too have a nanny with us. We are a couple in our late 50’s and early 60’s and adopted our grandkids, so we are doing it again. Oy Vey! I am Jewish and my wife is Catholic and our nanny is LDS. So we are diverse. We would enjoy meeting other Jewish familes and Jews in general for social and holiday get togethers. We hope to hear from you. My email is Polarbar_2000@yahoo.com

  3. Hello all,
    I am looking for my Jewish home in Oak Harbor. I moved here from Colorado, and before that Tampa. at USF I was heavily involved in Hillel and Chabad. I am also an alumnus of the historically Jewish fraternity ZBT. I can be reached at Willie.wrightiii@live.com. look forward to hearing back.
    Very Respectfully,
    Willie Wright III

  4. I am an old lady who is planning a trip to Jerusalem in two years.
    I thought it might be useful to study Hebrew and believe that it is taught in synagogues.
    I live in Coupeville. I can be reached on Facebook under Nancy Jablinske
    Thank you.
    Nancy Jablinske

    .This year, we sing of travel: of the courage, persistence and grace it requires. It may be a journey to a new place or towards a new understanding, the road to forgiveness, or the road home. The diverse repertoire presented in our spring concert,”From Strength to Strength,”will take you on a journey through time and space, stopping to savor Sephardic melodies from Turkey and Yemen, as well as popular Yiddish-American tunes. We will travel through the desert by camel caravan in the evocative Orcha Bamidbar, experience the awe of Moses and the Israelites’ safe passage across the sea, and feel the exuberant celebration of Miriam, Dancing with the Women. Ma Navu, Making the Desert Bloom and Naomi Shemer’s classic Jerusalem of Gold will surround us with the sounds and rhythms of the Promised Land, both ancient and new. And finally, arriving home, we are reminded “how good it is to be together, in a rousing new gospel-style setting of Hinei Mah Tov. Travel with us through this poignant, energizing and uplifting music–no passport required

  6. Hi,

    I want to introduce myself. My name is Polly. My husband, myself and our 3 children will be moving to Whidbey Island this summer. We currently are in Seattle. We are intrested in getting involved with the Jewish community on island. We homeschool our kids and would like to get to know some Jewish families in the area. Our kids are 14 yrs. old and 12yr.old twins. Are there any summer events coming up that we could attend? Thanks for your time.

    Shalom,
    Polly
