Wine Tasting

Swirl, Sip and Swish

Sunday 2:00 PM–3:30 PM Lobby right corner

Israel, Social and Communal

Discover the many facets of kosher wine while learning about its symbolism in marking Jewish life events. Explore the complex balance of aroma, mouthfeel, and structural elements. Have fun, get your nose into it, and enjoy an experience that appeals to both your intellectual and sensual sides. All wine served is kosher.

Creating A Community Wimple

Rachel Kanter

Sunday 11:00 AM–12:15 PM Lobby left corner

Arts & Performance, Children & Families

A traditional wimple is a Torah binder. We will expand on that definition as we create one large communal art piece that represents Limmud NY and becomes a “community binder.” In this session Tyvek, a non-woven polyethylene product, will serve as the “cloth” for the wimple, while scissors, paint and markers will help transform it into a new ritual object. We will revive, reinterpret, and reinvent the wimple.

Join the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Registry

Sunday 11:00 AM–2:00 PM Help Desk

It's a great feeling to know that you have the power to save a life. Thankfully, you won't need to leap tall buildings in a single bound to be a super hero! Instead, you'll need a cheek swab, a kind and compassionate personality, and the dedication to be someone's hero when you receive the call someday that you are a match! Are you ready to save a life? The first step, as part of Limmud NY's tzedakah (acts of righteousness) initiatives, is to get swabbed!
