JEWISH CONFERENCE ALERT!

Now that the holidays are over, we Jews just don’t know what to do with ourselves! So we have professional workshops and conferences, to keep ourselves busy and so that we can keep playing Jewish geography with new and exciting people.

Toward this goal, and because nobody's asked me to attend UJC's General Assembly, I’ve registered for one of each…maybe you’ll join me!

THIS SUNDAY...October 31, Lishmah Day of Jewish Learning
http://www.lishmah.org/ to register and for complete program

By creating an extraordinary one-day experience for Jews from across social, political, and denominational lines, Lishmah aims to inspire a revival in Jewish learning that touches the entire community. Choose from over 100 different workshops, film screenings, discussion groups, lectures, and panel discussions. Discover the biblical prophecy of Moses and the prophetic rock & roll of Bob Dylan. Listen to the exotic voices of Sephardic song and the joyful sounds of klezmer. Unearth the mystical teachings of Kaballah and engage in feminist readings of the stories of Rachel and Ruth. Explore the ways in which Jewish text and tradition relate to contemporary issues ranging from the environment to reproductive rights to tabloid gossip to the war on terrorism.

November 7-8, American Jewish Press Association’s Freelancers’ Workshop

AJPA's first ever Freelance Workshop is a seminar in Manhattan, featuring a variety of experts to sharpen your writing, researching and marketing skills. I'm not sure if registration's still open, but check it out at: http://www.ajpa.org/
