What exactly is SYC?
SYC is the Sephardic Youth Club. We are a group of matchmakers that want to help singles meet naturally and organically in a fun, un-intimidating setting. Our objective is for singles to get together more often without having to be set up on blind dates, which is not everyone’s cup of tea. Our events are geared towards singles of all different ages and all different religious levels. We want to reach everyone, or as many people as we possibly can.
This summer we actually had many successful events. You may have even attended a few without even knowing who we are. SYC and the Deal Sephardic Network (DSN) collaborated to make an after beach barbecue at the beautiful home of Doris and Mark Dweck. Our gracious hosts generously opened up their backyard for singles to come and just hang out and talk to each other by the pool. They also enjoyed a delicious barbecue and of course had some drinks. Our singles reported back that they liked the party because they didn’t feel any pressure, and just enjoyed mingling with friends and meeting new people. That is what we want to hear.
Our next party was a collaboration with DSN and Live with Lee. We were very fortunate to join forces with Lee and DSN to make a hugely successful event at the magnificent home of Ricky and Jamie Cohen. The party was on the beach underneath a gorgeous full moon. We had bars for drinks , two fire pits for chatting around, and Arielle Labaton as a DJ, which created the perfect atmosphere for our singles to get together. Baruch Hashem we had about three hundred singles join us that night. Even better, we were told that many people met and we heard of plenty of dates that came from that party. What a success!!
Obviously these events do not create themselves. In order to continue doing what we are doing we need help from you . Whether that comes in the form of feedback from singles, the donation of a venue, or a financial contribution - we invite you to be a part of this tremendous mitzvah
