Maybe you've been to one of our interactive shiurim... Or maybe you've read about us in the 5 Towns Jewish Timesor Jewish Home... Whatever it is, you've come here because you are interested in helping us out! Thanks for that! :-)
We think Dvash is pretty awesome. We've only been around since February and already we have hosted over 600 different individualsand over 1000 counting repeat attendees. We are the only organization that offers a regular opportunity for people to meet. Some reasons why Dvash is the best:
- We have shiurim and events twice a month. We provide an opportunity for individuals to be proactive about their datingand attend a shiur where they can meet people whenever they have the opportunity
- We are the only organization run by singles for singles. We understand singles and what they want and need
- We provide an environment that is low stress and comfortable but at the same time is appropriate and kosher
- We provide educational programming and opportunities for growth
All this time we have been operating without appropriate web and technology infrastructure. And that takes a toll on our committee. We want to keep doing this and having a working website will greatly help with that. We are looking to raise $6000 for the developement of the site and associated media. Any additional funds will be used to bring in more amazing speakers and provide more resources to the community.
If you've been attending Dvash until now, we wanted to thank you. If this is your first time hearing about us, thanks for stopping by. We really appreciate your help, whether you can donate $1000, 500, 100 or 18! And if you have other ideas on how to help out, please contact us with the link on the right.
THIS is your chance to give back to the organization that has stepped up to make a difference. We hope you will be generous and help us take the next step with helping the community.
What is Dvash?
The Dvash Project is an interactive shiur held in Lawrence every other week. It draws a crowd of 60-100 Orthodox singles on a regular basis from as far away as Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and even Lakewood and Baltimore. Dvash was formed by a group of committed singles with the support of Rabbi Eytan Feiner and Rav Moshe Weinberger. They saw a need in the community for a kosher place for frum individuals to meet in an appropriate way. The interactive format of the shiur is arranged to generate genuine discussion among the participants, and the content and topics have depth and relevance to the participants of the shiur. Since the launch of the shiur less than a year ago, over 600 different peoplehave attended and through the shiur many of the attendees were introduced to appropriate dates. Over a dozen speakers have graced the shiur with their presence, including Rabbi Paysach Krohn, Rabbi Benzion Klatzko, and Rabbi YY Rubinstein.Questions? E-mail [email protected]
What people are saying about Dvash
“Everyone I spoke to really liked the event. I have never seen such a great reaction. I already told two people to come next week.”Next Shiur
“Really nicely done! Nice to have a laid back but "tachlis"-oriented setting for meeting people, and centering around a shiur makes for a good focus.”
“I think [the interactive part] was a GREAT idea. I was going to leave, but the first question posed was so good that I ended up staying to hear what people said. You also get to see how people interact with others”
“Thank you for such a wonderful event. It is a much needed program in our community. And I felt like it didn't compromise my tznius standards by attending, which is often how I feel at singles events.”
