I'm an east coaster originally but the bay area is in some ways a better fit for me, and I've been here now for ten years. I relax with both intellectual and physically active pursuits: Being outdoors and active, hiking and cycling (the challenge of the uphills and the rush of the downhills both energize me) are favorites. I satisfy my intellectual side with a mix of theatre, board games, and digging into new knowledge. Finally, Judaism is a key part of my identity and where I'm coming from, and I'm looking for someone to share that with.
The rest of the time: I spend a lot of time with my local DIY Jewish community here in San Francisco. It's a good mix of religious and social and being a part of an actual community, and helping to make it happen, is a fantastic experience.
The *rest* of the rest of the time: I enjoy hiking, social dancing (yes, really), cultural event goodness, and living in the Mission - a great neighborhood in a fantastic city, even if it *is* about 3,000 miles from most of my family.
Good dance lead
Fixing/building things that need to be fixed/built
Singing in groups
The rest is commentary.
