Princeton – Pod

About Us

Gidon and Tali are a pair of young professionals who both love cooking, music, and being outdoors. They got married in 2020 in a tiny COVID-friendly ceremony and have been living in Princeton, where Tali went to college, ever since. Between Tali’s midwestern roots (she’s from Chicago) and Gidon’s southern hospitality (he’s from DC, but he likes to think that qualifies), they’re both passionate about creating an open, friendly, welcoming Jewish community that feels comfortable for everyone – whether that means text study and prayer services or a leisurely hike while you talk about your favorite scenes from ‘You Don’t Mess With the Zohan.’ Gidon and Tali first met in high school at a Model UN conference, which makes them certified nerds. Between that and their love for Rojo’s coffee in Palmer Square, they’ve been having a great time in Princeton – and they can’t wait to share those unique Central Jersey experiences with you!
