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.
Ritual, tradition and memory are woven together through dance in choreographer Joanie Block’s dance performance, Streaming Shabbat, at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton on Saturday, October 26 at 8pm.
Using three stories centered around Shabbat, Block merges an original score by Billy Novick, video art by Lynn Bikofsky, and her own choreography. Featuring SELMADANSE, a professional dance company of six dancers, Block creates a performance that challenges, inspires and connects the audience to the rituals and power of the Jewish Sabbath.
This event is open to all. Interfaith families/individuals welcome. The program is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts. Cost: $20. Additional performance on Sunday, October 27 at 4pm.
