Hello Wandering Jews both old and new. I don't usually make it a habit of posting here since leaving the area last year, but am in need of your assistance. If any of you know of a recent grad looking for an entry level PR job and are willing to move out of the city...Utica area.  I have a great opportunity and please send them my way.  All the best and Cassi, Noam, and I are hoping to make our way back to the hood this summer, so see you then!

Apology: Last Week's Happy Hour
Last week, a happy hour was planned that was supposed to be a joint event between Wandering Jews of Astoria and Chabad of Long Island City. Various group members showed up at different times to find that no one else was there. The WJOA board is discussing what went wrong and will seek to avoid such problems in the future.

We apologize to anyone who went only to find that the event was not taking place. We will aim to be much more on top of things with events, whether our own or with partnering organizations, going forward.

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.

 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.

Comment by Michael Croland on April 2, 2012 at 6:43pm

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.

Comment by Steve M. on March 28, 2012 at 10:51pm

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.
