Community News & Events
Jewish Ideas Daily
Jewish Ideas Daily is a one-stop online resource of opinion and insight, of deliberation and analysis, of reflection, discovery, stimulation, and delight: the best that has been thought and said by or about Jews.
The website's range of interest is very wide: Jewish history, religion, society, and thought, Jewish literature, art, music, and culture, Jewish politics and world affairs, Jewish people and places, Jewish philosophy, Jewish ethics, and the Jewish spirit. In illuminating each of these topics, it draws upon an equally wide variety of sources: daily opinion pages from around the world, weekly and monthly magazines, academic journals, books, blogs, video and audio content from think-tanks, universities, and online learning sites. Many of its sources are timely and up-to-the-minute. Many others are timeless, classic and provocative writings of the far or recent past that merit rediscovery and reconsideration. Still others are original content in the form of columns, interviews, and commissioned debates on big questions by leading thinkers and public figures.
Meals on Wheels
Do you know someone who could benefit from a home delivered meal?
Maybe you know a neighbor, a friend, or a relative? Perhaps someone who recently returned home from the hospital? Please call us!! Stanley Isaacs Neighborhood Center would be happy to provide a meal to eligible seniors (60+ years old) in need living between 5th Avenue and the East River from 59th Street up to 143rd Street. Hot, frozen and Kosher meals are available. To make a referral for yourself or someone else, or for more information, please contact the East Side Case Management Consortium at 212-744-5022, Ext. 1203.
Connect to Care
In response to these challenging times, UJA-Federation of New York has created a program called Connect to Care to help members of the Jewish community who have been hurt by the current economic downturn. A new component of this program offers residents of Manhattan and Westchester interest-free loans up to $10,000.00 designed to help middle-income families help themselves. The program is open to families who had pre-recession gross family income of up to $140,000.00 and lost significant income because of the recession.
For further information or to learn more about whether the loan program is right for you, a loved one, or someone else in the community, please contact one of the following:
In Manhattan: The Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services at 212-399-2685, Ext. 206 or
In Westchester: Westchester Jewish Community Services at 914-470-5721 or
Today's Israel Online Magazine - Click here...
There's so much more to Israel than what one reads in the media, but unless you live in Israel, how can you learn about the full diversity of Israeli life? "Today's Israel", born out of concern for how Israel is portrayed in the media, is an online magazine focusing on the "rich tapestry of culture" that makes Israel unique. Read about lifestyle, music, the arts, cinema, religion, food, health, and more - aspects of life we take for granted in our own community but which are so rarely covered with respect to Israel.
