'The Deuce': Yids of the 1970s

'Wet Hot American Summer' Is Back

Mentions of summer camp unlock feelings of nostalgia as memories of bonfires, canoe rides, color war, abysmal dining food and bunk raids come flooding back. But for the cast of the cultural phenomenon, “Wet Hot American Summer,” the trip down memory lane is a lot less wholesome.

Top 5 LGBTJew-ish Pride Events In NYC

“Yesterday’s struggle is today’s heritage” happens to be the tagline of NYC Pride’s array of events and initiatives recognizing June as Pride Month, but it could just as easily refer to the Jewish people’s resilient history. For Jews who also identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as their allies, Pride Month is the perfect time to explore and celebrate both identities. So without further ado, here are 5 events aiming to help people do just that.

Community BBQ and Solidarity Gathering

Fundraising

You are invited to join Nefesh B'Nefesh this Friday afternoon for a community BBQ lunch.

Wear a helmet, save your life

It takes only a brief moment for someone’s head to hit the concrete pavement on a typical bike run home, and an entire family’s life is changed in the blink of an eye.

“He was so active and healthy,” Sam Cohen fondly recalls of his Sabra dad, Reuben Cohen. “Biking was his livelihood. That’s how he got to work. Yes, he was 87 years old, but I believe that he would’ve lived until 100 or more if he would’ve worn a helmet.”

A Rejection is Protection

I reject all the time:

“Nah I don’t want that organic Navel orange.”

“I’m afraid that parking spot it just too close to my door. Don’t wanna get a scratch.”

“Ugh, that guy looks like he’s 50. There’s no way he really is 39 like it says in his JDate profile. I am not answering his e-mail.”

But I have to admit that I think I’ve finally found one area in which I can dish it out but can’t always take it.

Last month I dated three guys who all rejected me in different ways either before or during the first date!

Adventures with dried fruit guy

MEET OREN. Back in March, he somehow found me on Facebook through mutual friends, and in a haze I don’t really remember, I accepted his friend request. For a few months, he tried valiantly to get me to go out with him, or at least respond to his emails and frequent comments on my stati.
But it was to no avail. Who is this guy? I wondered, x’ing out the IM box for the hundredth time, still not fully defriending him – since, I must admit, his faithfulness kind of interested, or I should say, amused me.

Beach Bus

BeachBus takes you every Friday & Saturday to the beach in Tel Aviv. Pickup spots are from convenient neighborhoods such as Katamon, Rechavia and the City Center.

Weekends are hot in Jerusalem, why not spend them at the beach?
