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.

Gus Schumacher, former U.S. Undersecretary of Agriculture, will discuss an innovative solution for sustaining healthy communities at a lunchtime talk at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center on Tuesday, October 18, from 12-1:30pm. The discussion will center on "Prescription Vegetables," a pilot program that enables doctors at three health centers in Massachusetts to treat poor families and families struggling with health and obesity, by writing "prescriptions" that can be used at local farmers markets to buy fruits and vegetables. Talk will be held under the sukkah (booth) on the west lawn of the JCC in observance of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Held indoors in the event of rain. Bring your lunch and a can of vegetables that will be donated to Family Table. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action. No charge. RSVP by calling 617-558-6480.
