Meet the Members: Bethany and Moe
Where are you from?

Moe: NY/NJ
Bethany: Houston

But before Seattle, we lived in Chicago. 

What brought you to Seattle?

Isaac (Moe's) brother was always saying how great it is here, so when we finished grad school, we followed him. 

What's your favorite current board game or hobby or something you have discovered during the pandemic?

We love riding our e-bikes all over town. There are so many little parks to visit all over the city, which are really nice to bring a picnic dinner to.

What's something you are looking forward to?

We are looking forward to welcoming the newest member of the Sharp family in March.

What appeals to you about Mercaz or about the North End community in general?

We love how welcoming everyone in the community is. With new people moving to the North End (seemingly) every day, it's great to be part of such a close-knit community. 
Save the date for our next B'nei Akiva Teen Oneg and Shabbat Snif.

Shabbat Vayera, October 23/24. 

Teen Oneg on Friday night and Shabbat afternoon Snif for grades 2-6.
