Embark Philly: The Home We Build Together

Rabbi Megan GoldMarche of Tribe 12 and Rabbi Elyssa Cherney of TacklingTorah are teaming up with Embark to offer “The Home We Build Together,” a 6-part series for couples seeking community and support as they make decisions about their spiritual lives. This couples cohort will help build community amongst Jews and those who love them who are in a similar life stage in the Philly area.

Sessions will include conversations about how to: celebrate holidays in your home, choose a synagogue, create new traditions together and more! This series will be followed by peer-hosted Shabbat dinners throughout the summer and culminate in a retreat at the end of the summer (August 25-27).

Our initial cohort will begin in May and is open to all couples in committed relationships, especially those from mixed-heritage & interfaith backgrounds. We will also be launching a second cohort in the fall (with participants attending the same end of summer retreat as a kickoff). If you are interested in the fall cohort, please let us know and we will be in touch with more details.


Tribe 12 connects people in their 20s/30s to Jewish life and community in Philadelphia today so they will choose to stay connected tomorrow. We welcome people who identify as Jewish, whose partner is Jewish, or who are exploring Judaism. Tribe 12 seeks to include all individuals regardless of gender or identity expression, religious history and practice, health and disability whether visible or invisible, and financial circumstances. For questions, to request accommodations, or just to say hi, reach out to yo@tribe12.org.
