Welcome to 3049

The Federation’s Premier Division Connecting Adults 30 to 49 to the Community – and Each Other!

The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County welcomes singles and couples between 30 and 49 for connection with peers to socialize, learn, lead, volunteer and more.

This is not your grandparent’s Federation.

Whether you’re from the area or a newcomer, 3049 is a whole new division with infinite possibilities. We are building a welcoming space for those looking to build friendships and make an impact on the local and global Jewish community.

3049 is the group that will connect you to what and who you’re interested in within South Palm Beach County. Join us for Sunday brunch, evening cocktails, outdoor adventures, travel, and so much more. The Jewish Federation seeks to build and sustain a strong, caring, vibrant Jewish community for today and tomorrow. 3049 is your opportunity to make your mark. Discover what our Jewish community can offer you!

If you are a community member in your 20’s, please visit our Young Adult Division (YAD) page.

Thank you to our 3049 Division Sponsors

All About Our Inaugural 30’s and 40’s Sunday Brunch!

We were thrilled to welcome nearly seventy 30’s and 40’s to the 3049 launch event on May 22nd, at the Hyatt Place Downtown Boca. The Sunday Brunch was hosted by our incredible 3049 co-chairs, Benji Gene and Rachel Schrager.

After indulging in a delicious brunch buffet catered by Ditmas Kosher catering, participants broke out into small groups to get to know each other. You could feel the energy pulsing throughout the room as new connections were made.

All about Summer Trivia Night @ Prosperity Brewers 

3049’ers joined together at our first summer Trivia Night held at Prosperity Brewers to mix, mingle, and connect over craft brewed beer and appetizers. Nearly 80 participants spent the evening in small groups competing over pop culture trivia. The competition was fierce and the room humming with laughter and chatter. 3049 is all about building connections over shared experiences and this evening certainly didn’t disappoint.

All About Chopped, Sukkot Edition

Held on our very own Federation campus, over fifty 3049 participants gathered for food, drink, and some sticky competition. While learning about the meaning of Sukkot, groups of four were challenged to build mini sukkot out of yummy ingredients including ginger bread, frosting, and a host of sweets modeled after the hit show ‘Chopped.’ It was incredible to see the group’s creative side shine!

“My federation journey began during the isolating times of the pandemic. The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County welcomed me with open arms, introduced me to incredible people, and offered me the exciting opportunity to lead. 3049 is a new group I can enjoy together with my husband. It is designed to help foster relationships and introduce people in this age group to make connections, friendships, and join together to better our local community.”

Rachel Schrager, 3049 Co Chair

“Now more than ever, building a strong Jewish community is paramount.  3049 was born out of the need to facilitate building a strong Jewish community for those who have lived in South Palm Beach County for years and for those who have just arrived. Meeting new cohorts and developing strong personal and communal connections can be difficult with family and career schedules. 3049 is a unique opportunity to meet new people while strengthening our Jewish community”
