CONNECT is designed to welcome Tampa community members who are new to the area or who just want to get more connected and involved with the Tampa JCCs & Federation and the Jewish community.

We provide opportunities for the community to make meaningful connections to people, resources and Jewish experiences in the Tampa area.


CONNECT offers meaningful opportunities to:


·  Enjoy Shabbat dinners and holiday meals in local homes

·  Get to know Jewish community members

·  Receive personal invitations to attend Tampa JCCs & Federation events



We look forward to welcoming you!


New Tampa Jewish Meet Up Group

There’s now a group on for Tampa area Jewish community members ages 18 and older to create opportunities to gather and invite others to join along. The Meetup group is volunteer-led and supported by the Tampa JCCs & Federation.


The Meetup group is a tool to give Jewish community members a way to make plans with one another based on their interests. Dinners together, sports outings, trivia nights, bowling, pickleball, volunteer opportunities, walking groups - how ever you want to get-together, the Meetup platform is available to our community, free of charge.

For more information, please contact Lisa Robbins, Director of Engagement for the Tampa JCCs & Federation: or 813.769.4723.

Thank you for attending the Bagel Brunch!
