All of our regular meetings are held at the South County Civic Center on the second Wednesday of the month unless otherwise noted. Prior to the formal meeting at 1:00 pm, a "Brick Wall" session is held at 12:30 pm. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) meet as indicated here. In those months, the SIG meeting(s) begin at 11:30 am.

Our regular monthly meetings are held for the benefit of our members. Guests are welcome for a fee of $5.00, which will be credited towards your membership if you choose to join. Members of other Jewish Genealogical Societies may attend one meeting at no cost, but only if you have a current membership card from your home organization.

Handouts from some of our previous meetings can be found here.
