This colorful booklet will give all the basics about this holiday which combines elements of Halloween, Mardi Gras and the secular new year. It is a holiday not only for children who know immediately that anything with a costume will be fun, but for adults too.
Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Nate Bloom, column writer here. Actually, I did mention the actor, Adam Pally, who plays the gay Jewish character in Happy Endings in a November column. As I said in the first paragraph of the item–it wasn’t quite an interfaith celebs item, but it did concern an African American character and a Jewish character teaming up to be Bar Mitzvah DJs. Bottom line: Adam Pally is Jewish, but he is not gay. He is married to a “hometown” Jewish woman and they had their first child about 18 months ago. Here’s a link to that column: http://tinyurl.com/b9mn554
