December 2019 Get the Folk Out!

2019 is on the outs, friends. But December… December always holds some delightful farewells, and this one is no different. We’ve got some great parties — both in the professional and friendship worlds — and some great chances to end the year with some extra mensch points. Take a look y’all, and pick at least […]

November 2019 Get the Folk Out!

Feel that? Yeah, me too. It suddenly got reeeeeaal drafty outside, and now, unless it involves a bowl o’ soup, a cup o’ tea and a mug o’ whiskey, I’m already struggling to get outside for it. Even if this year has had some just gorgeous foliage. Yep, we’ve hit that time of year where […]

September 2019 Get the Folk Out!

Sorry, this one’s a little late & after the long weekend, friends. I’m guessing (hoping?) I’m not alone in September sneaking up on me. Last night, I saw the first leaves of the year drop with a gust of wind… but then, my spirits were picked right back up watching everyone go to school for […]

By contrast, July is far more low-key… which, frankly, is just fine, considering it’s gonna start off by being […]

An Open Letter to Those Considering Honeymoon Israel

Dear fellow Jewish couples in whatever form that is for you, Shalom! I’m Ian, a formerly Jewish, then Jew-“ish,” and now again Jewish person who only very recently opens any sort of letter with “Shalom.” Presumably, you’re reading this because you’re curious about Honeymoon Israel, a.k.a. “Birthright, but much more progressive, and with way less […]

June 2019 Get the Folk Out

What a great month to get out and celebrate, friends. June means we’re officially starting summer, complete with Shavuot and Pride! We’ve got tons of good times coming for both, as well as for the days where you just need a l’il somethin’ extra in your social life. So join us and GTFO! “J-HAP Community […]
