RUACH is Rockdale's community for Jewish young professionals (JYPs) around the Cincinnati area. Our group serves 20s and 30s through social events, informal study opportunities, and volunteer and social action programs.RUACH offers events like Sip in the Sukkah, Israeli wine tastings, Havdalah & Israeli Food Fest, Sushi, Sake, and Study, Trivia Night with New American Friends (refugees), Torah on Tap, an annual Reds game, holiday toy collection and wrapping, and more. RUACH celebrates Shabbat together often by attending services together and going out for dinner, holding creative services at members' homes and interesting venues, and of course, organizing home-hosted Shabbat meals. 

RUACH is led by Rabbi Meredith Kahan and a dedicated group of JYPs. Please contact Rabbi Kahan for more information at

RUACH events are open to all Jewish young professionals ages 21-39; significant others, those interested in Judaism, and friends of all faith backgrounds are welcome.
