Have you recently had a kid?! Well, then you probably want to see medical attention, because that’s really weird! However, if you’ve recently had baby, then feel free to drop on by to this community baby shower and get some free baby swag and enjoy some refreshments!

Judaism 101 ($75)

A Taste of Honey: An Introduction to Judaism

Mon. Oct. 12; 7 p.m.; Mount Zion Temple; 1300 Summit Ave, St.Paul, MN

For those looking for a greater understanding of Judaism or considering converting (FYI: this class is mandatory for those in the latter camp!), you ought to show up and have your mind opened-wide and blown up with topics that include  Jewish history, life cycle, ­Shabbat, theology, etc! For extra credit, students may write a paper on the meaning of Jewish Guilt. Those who fail the class will get an angry call from their mothers.
