ABBA, which means "father" in Hebrew, is a group of men who want to: socialize with other Jewish men, participate in wide-ranging Jewish activities, and just get out of the house every now and then!  

There is no time commitment or membership fee. ABBA events are usually scheduled about once a month and each event is organized by different participants in the group. Events are usually scheduled at timesa that are friendly to fathers of young children. For more information about ABBA, contact Jordan Baker or Rob Sherman.
