Who says Jews can’t celebrate Christmas sZN?
Prepare to join a virtual party unlike any other! With movie theaters and Chinese food restaurants closed, Trybal is here to bring you the festive magic of the holiday season with a Jewish twist… all from the comfort of your couch. We’re thrilled to introduce The Holiday Party: a fanciful evening of Party Rooms, meeting new people, and hygge.
Join us as we trade black tie attire for cozy holiday sweaters (yes, they’re included!) and swap "oy" for "joy!". This interactive, choose-your-own-adventure is designed for you and 300 perfect strangers. So register before tickets sell out!
THE PARTY HOSTS
Join distinguished leaders for an experiential celebration that allows you to explore a new hobby, pick up a new skill, and meet incredible people right in your virtual backyard. You’ll walk away with inspiration and a community that transcends beyond the screen. And, maybe, just maybe… a paper plate award and some Oprah-style giveaways.

The Trybal Holiday Party

8-10 pm ET / 5-7 pm PT
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Trybal is fortunate to work with amazing community partners who are bold thinkers, creative do-ers, and who generously support innovation. The Trybal Holiday Party is powered by our partners organizations below, who serve as our local addresses across the country:
Gin-gle all the way around our virtual bar! Our signature cocktails include a Clausmopolitan, Mint Jew-lip, and Daiquri the Halls. We’ll guide you not only in making the drink itself, but also explain the meaning behind the recipe. All beverages may also be made as mocktails. Elevate your home bartending skills and holiday spirits in this hands-on workshop!
Whose Holiday is it Anyway?
Turn those "ho ho hos" into "ha ha has" in this interactive, holiday-themed improv workshop, where your wild ideas and playfulness will guide the story. We'll play a series of games that involve your imagination, creative storytelling, and contagious laughter. Whether you’re ready for the stage or just want to be entertained, everyone will experience the joy of improv.
Prepare your body, mind, and breath for the upcoming year in our vinyasa yoga class. We’ll bring the studio to your home with a calming yet energizing flow. This sequence is designed to release old patterns of tension and create space to bring your best self forward into the new year. Open to beginners and yogis of all levels!
Wok & Roll
Nothing says the holidays time like Chinese food and movies! Put your chopsticks to use and learn how to create an authentic fried rice dish with this at-home cooking class. By participating, you'll also receive a $3 credit to rent a movie on Amazon on December 25! An ingredients list will be provided after registering. Recipe is vegan and gluten-free!
Snow Way Out:
An Escape Room
Beat the clock in our virtual escape room, where teams will work together to crack codes, solve puzzles, and piece together clues to advance through a series of levels and challenges. Come with a friend or on your own! Everyone will be placed on a team and will have fun while meeting new people.
Rabbi Jenn Queen & Shereen Sarick
Gather ‘round the yule long with some hot cocoa and homemade s’mores! Between your favorite campfire songs will share campfire folklore, stories, and midrash (rabbinic fan-fic). Play an instrument? Bring it along! No musical talent is required though. Just bring yourself, a cozy blanket, and a song request or story!
Egg Noggin Trivia
Real Genius Entertainment
Were you a regular at trivia night? Do you answer Jeopardy questions before the contestants hit the buzzer? If this sounds like you -- and even if it doesn't! -- put your useless knowledge to the test in this professionally led and interactive trivia competition. Prizes awarded for top scorers. Believe in your elf. Cause we certainly do!
Cuffing season may be upon us, but why not seek out your true besheret (soulmate)? Come meet 5-7 different people who match your criteria from the comfort of your living room. Staff will guide you in a series of thoughtful, creative, and fun questions that will expand your network and introduce you to people you may never have otherwise met!
Rabbi Rena Singer
2020 jumped the shark, but there’s still hope for next year. In this session we will have a meaningful conversation about Jewish wisdom on living our best lives. Can we change? How do we go about changing? We will talk about our dreams and hopes for the next year and how to make resolutions that last.
