Young Jewish people in Johannesburg need a venue and forum where they can meet and socialise in a relaxed non-contrived environment. This is the idea behind 'The Friday Night Club' based at Sydenham Shul - to cater specifically for Jewish Young Adults.

The Friday Night Club's trademark event is ‘Dinner on Main' - a Friday Night Dinner following the Shul Services. Attracting 250 people, each dinner is a full-course Shabbat meal and a great chance to meet young Jewish people, from all over Johannesburg and even beyond. The Friday Night Club has hosted a variety of celebrity guests at previous dinners - such as radio host Gareth Cliff, musician Johnny Clegg, political leader Helen Zille, Rebbetzin Rivkah Slonim of USA, Israel Delegate Elias Inbram, radio host Jeremy Mansfield, 2010 SA World Cup Chairman Irvin Khoza, Supersport United FC Director Stanley Matthews & Bafana Bafana World Cup star Bongani Khumalo.

The Friday Night Club also hosts week night events called: ‘Chill & Chat'. These events are a combination of exciting social activities as well as a chance to chat, talk and debate together with Rabbi Yehuda and Estee Stern.

Join our group on Facebook - The Friday Night Club - and keep up to date with future events and programs.
