Justice, justice thou shalt…party?
The Inside the Activists’ Studio was a great event — Nina over at JVoices has a summary — with over 125 folks. But more about that later. At the moment, the need to party together frequently was mentioned previously regarding the emerging pan-Jewish social justice cooperation. So here’s the sponsors’ NY-area Hanukah parties for your social calendars.
Personally, I’m a fan of NIF’s comedy gig with Yisrael Campbell. Got others? Put ’em in the comments.
Join the AJWS-AVODAH NY City Team for an evening of reinvigorating your Jewish and socially conscious self, followed by a social outing at a nearby bar. Latkes will be served!
When: Monday, December 15th @ 6:30pm
Where: Location revealed when you RSVP
