Jew Wanna Go? | September 4 – September 10, 2015

A JAR of Judaism (FREE!)

Sat. Sep. 5; 8:30 p.m.; Adath Jeshurun Congregation; 10500 Hillside Ln. W., Minnetonka, MN

Camp Ramah-goers and fellow TC Jewfolks rejoice! Jon Adam Ross (known mostly as JAR), a performance and visual artist, a playwright, and Rosh Mercaz at the previously mentioned camp, will be returning to our neck of the woods presenting shared stories of the TC Jewish community as well as talking about what direction we’re going. Thank goodness! I thought we were dealing with the return of Jar Jar Binks! Phew!



Strength to Celebrate (FREE!)

Book Launch Party for Sheyna Galyan’s new Jewish thriller STRENGTH TO STAND!

Thurs. Sep. 10; 6:00 p.m.; SubText Books, 44th 6 W. Fifth St., Saint Paul, MN 55102

Ok. This time, it’s personal. Full disclosure: I personally know Sheyna Galyan. She is a heck of a sweet lady! The fact that she’s had a novel published, let alone a second one is incredibly awesome! Alright, now that I’ve done my happy dance because I’ve finally met a real-life novelist, I’ll just say this: Come celebrate with her as she launches her brand-spankin’-new thriller!

Jewish Pride ($10)

JFCS NextGen Fall Party with J-Pride

Thurs. Sep. 10; 6 p.m.; Icehouse MPLS; 2528 Nicollet Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Support for the LGBT community is always important, as far I’m concerned. And when there are free appies and a free drink involved?!?! What are you waiting for?!

Back Pocket…Events to Come! (Or…Events to Come, but we’ll schmooze about them more later!)
