Tricities.jpgThe Tri-Cities includes Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. The region is characterized by an abundance of excellent parks, walking trails, playgrounds and picnic areas. There’s a sizable population of Israeli and Russian Jews here, and as Vancouver housing prices have risen sharply over the past few years, many young Jewish families have relocated to the Tri-Cities. In collaboration with the Burquest Jewish Community Centre in Coquitlam, Connect Me In hosts many Jewish events here, such as Hanukkah and Purim parties, challah bakes and children’s programs.

  • Purim Party - March 2017

    Together with Burquest Jewish Community Association and Aleph in the Tri-Cities, we hosted nearly 200 community members for a fun-filled, family-friendly Purim party at Burquest in Coquitlam. We had a great time dressing up in costumes, eating hamantaschen, and, of course, booing Haman!
