 Chabad of LIC for a Pre-Pesach Happy Hour - Is this still going on tonight? I didn't see anyone commenting, so I"m not sure who is coming.

Evan, Key Food on 31st between Ditmars and 23rd has some of the basics, as other stores in the area probably do too. But if you venture out to another NYC neighborhood, you're in a for a real kosher-for-Passover treat. Personally I like Seasons at 661 Amsterdam Avenue on the Upper West Side -- well worth the once-a-year schlep.

hey ladies and gents,

I wrote a passover parody to Cee Lo Green.  If you and your family ever had to sit through a dreadful rendition of "Pharaoh, Pharaoh", this is something you'll really enjoy.

Shabbat on 4/20
The next WJOA Shabbat services and vegetarian potluck will take place at Bracha and Ilana's on Friday, 4/20, at 6:30 p.m. By that point, chametz will be enthusiastically embraced! To sign up, get the address, and say what vegetarian potluck dish you'll be bringing, e-mail Bracha at BrachaTRubin@gmail.com.
 
Park Cleanup on 4/21
On Saturday, April 21, join WJOA in giving back to our community as we team up with New York Cares for their annual spring effort to clean up city parks, gardens, and public spaces around New York City to get ready for the arrival of summer. Get ready to plant, mulch, compost, paint, and more, as we work together on volunteer projects that improve our communal backyard.

We will be working outdoors from 9 to 3. There is a $20 registration fee for this event, which covers the cost of supplies and a tee shirt and raises funds to support New York Cares' year-round volunteer programs, which provide services to 400,000 New Yorkers in need. Register today at www.newyorkcaresday.org. Click on 'register' and then 'Join a team.' Select the "Wandering Jews of Astoria" team to help us make New York City cleaner and greener! It's good, green fun. For more information, please contact Melinda at MelCoop@gmail.com.
 
Note: This event is not shomer Shabbat. We may be hosting a small Shabbat service before this event in the morning. We will send out details at a later date.
 
Happy Hour
There will likely be a joint happy hour with Chabad of Long Island City on a weeknight before Passover starts. This event has yet to be confirmed. For more information, e-mail Ben at BenRyanNathan@gmail.com or stay tuned to our group's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WanderingJews).

Hi All again..

I'm helping with an all kosher restaurant/lounge opening called Jezebel in the LES. It's going to be a hip, sexy place where people in the Jewish community can come together- opening in a few weeks time. If anyone is interested in learning more about opening night/future events, please email me kristine.majestic@gmail.com

Thank you to everyone who completed the seder survey. We expect about 10-12 people to attend the seder on the second night of Passover (Saturday, April 7). We are looking for someone who's willing to host the seder in his or her home. Someone else will take care of coordinating food and, if need be, a table and chairs as well. If you're interested in hosting this seder, please e-mail Melinda at MelCoop@gmail.com.

Looks like I'm the oldest person on this website.  Anyway, I was born in Astoria,

There was a shul on 35thSt. off 31Ave. called Congregation Beth-El.  I went there for hebrew school and all the holidays.  There weren't many jewish kids in the public schools so it was nice meeting kids of the same faith.  I moved away from Astoria when I was 16 but in a way I never left.  I have a business on Broadway and 38 Street.  My parents opened it up 60 years ago.  Alot of changes since then.  I suppose there are more jews now than 60 years ago.  Come into the  locksmith store and say shalom.

Hey all - head on over to Astoria Center of Israel on Monday night (March 12) 8pm TEMPLE OF COMEDY.  (It's a fundraiser for the synagogue that happens to be going through a lot of changes recently).   You don't have to leave the neighborhood to do a good deed, get your laugh on, drink some cheap red wine, shmooze with some jews and possibly win a great meal or two from one of the sponsors in the raffle (John Browns, Butcher Bar, Bistro 33, William Hallett, Astor Room, Piccolo Venezia, Astor Bake Shop....) They've all donated gift certificates to help raise money for a great community cause.  Hope to see you there.
