Or Ami Happenings

A group raise their glasses at the Beer Brew event.

By Win Loria


On October 18, Or Amians gathered for a brew and friendly conversation at Veil Brewing Company in Scott’s Addition.

Then on October 22, about 30 Or Amians and friends hit the pickleball courts at Huguenot Park followed by a potluck picnic lunch.  People of all ages tried their hands at the game under the instruction of pickleball experts Adam and Hillary Goldsmith and Rabbi Ahuva.

Rabbi Ahuva provides some pickleball instruction.
