Erasing the hate in Brooklyn

You’ve watched on these pages as I get all down on aspects of the Jewish community, maybe in the same way that Park Slope residents get unnerved by the shortcomings of their hood (baby stroller traffic jams, gentrification, etc.). So it’s nice every now and then when events conspire to somehow bring out the best in everyone.

I’m guessing that when Rabbi Bachman stood on the steps and blew his Jew-horn, it probably struck some divinely-branded electricity into these haterfolk…

These moments, where Jews represent themselves by acknowledging their interdependence with a larger community, seem so much more relevant than the inward-looking networking cocktails, cholents, Jewish singles events, and falafel noshes of yesteryear. I’m only sorry that it seemed to take equal-opportunity hate to bring out equal-opportunity love, but perhaps this can serve as a wake-up call.

SOLID + Tax day

Last night at Public Assembly was one for the books. A load of you came out in fantastically shitty weather and stayed up super late, an honor. Ridiculously fun, you guys! Thanks to all who braved the elements and supported us.

That’s the front of the arts section of the Park Slope/Williamsburg/Greenpoint/Sunset Park/etc. Courier weekly. Find the article, blogspot-style, here, and find out why “Hebrew School calls this rockin’ class to order.”

For those of you in metro NYC scanning the left end of the FM dial between 10 and 11 yesterday, you may have caught our rendition of “Hinei Ma Tov” on Bill Hahn’s show, “Sunday Simcha.” Check out yesterday’s WFDU 89.1 playlist here

David Cooper features us in his monthly pick of events over at NY Jewish Culture Examiner.

Also had kind mention on my new favorite everything-blog (that’s like a very delicious everything bagel, but a website), Things That Make Me Go… Thanks, Sara!
