Newcomers Receptions


Our newcomers receptions take place quarterly and offer an opportunity for those new to Nashville to meet other newcomers and people from our community, to mingle and to get all the information they need about living in Music City. At the reception, Nashville newbies meet with volunteers from our community, called welcoming ambassadors, who have volunteered to join with the Jewish Federation in reaching out to the newly arrived. Even if you’ve lived here for a few years, feel free to attend a reception to get better acclimated to Jewish life in Nashville. 


To attend: Please contact us at, or at (615) 354-1696.


2018 Newcomers reception

Small-Group Dinners


During our evaluation of the Newcomers program many of the newcomers and the Ambassadors raised the need to have smaller and intimate events, segmented by age—in addition to our bigger and more varied newcomers’ reception.

Therefore, you are welcome to join us to our Newcomers small group dinners. If you don’t consider yourself a newcomer anymore—feel free to join as well! it’s always nice to hear about others’ experience and how it was when they moved here, or just to meet new people. For the newish newcomers--it’s another opportunity for you to meet other newcomers and be able to meet 1-2 of the community’s Ambassadors.

Some of the dinners are hosted by our Ambassadors, at their house, and some are at a restaurant. The dinners at the restaurants are self-paid. The federation is in charge of the reservation.
