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.
National Public Radio comic correspondent Dan Zevin will discuss his latest book, Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad, at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton on Thursday, January 17, 2013.
Zevin’s book takes readers through his own humorous coming-of-age as a parent and adult. Rabbi Joseph Meszler, whose book (A Man’s Responsibility: A Jewish Guide to Being a Son, a Partner in Marriage, a Father and a Community Leader) is a provocative look at men’s spiritual growth, will add to the discussion. A craft beer tasting, sponsored by Homebrew Emporium of Cambridge, will follow.
The event takes place at 7:30pm and is open to the community. The program is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Boston Jewish Book Fair and is co-sponsored by JCC Early Learning Centers. Interfaith families/individuals welcome. Cost is $8. Purchase tickets at www.bostonjcc.org/bookfair or contact 617-965-5226 or email@example.com.
