What We Liked This Week, June 26-July 1

The people behind TC Jewfolk like to celebrate things. All kinds of things. Births, marriages, food, and the fun and interesting places and people we like. This posting will be a compilation of all of the things we liked this week, right before a (hopefully) nice and relaxing Shabbat.

Happy July 4th weekend! Who doesn’t love a three-day weekend? If you’re looking for some things to read and watch while driving to the cabin, to the beach, or just sitting around outside, we’ve got you covered:

Great photos from MPR at last Sunday’s Pride Parade, which TC Jewfolk was excited to be a part of with J-Pride.

An always relevant reminder about observing Independence Day.

A interesting read on a non-traditional Bat Mitzvah celebration.

Jewish gymnast and 2012 Olympian Aly Raisman put on an incredible display in her floor exercise at the P&G Gymnastics Championships.

And finally, St. Paul takes a (yet another) stab at getting people from the West Side of the river to come across.
