Moishe Nola, New Orleans' own branch of this international organization and outlet for young professionals in their 20s and 30s, is still new to town. Our friends and their friends have been coming out, and we've steadily had turnouts of 20+ people at our monthly potluck Shabbat dinners, but it looks like Sukkot is going to be our breakout event.
We've been reaching out to all of you in the Jewish community and in the community at large, and it's been such a pleasure to get feedback and find out that so many of you have heard about us already, through an email, a friend, Jewish News, the Community Calendar (we're on it!), or Facebook.
On Rosh Hashana, Jon went to Touro's lunch for Twenty and Thirty-somethings. Friday night, I probably met many of the same people at the Uptown Chabad's Shabbat dinner for graduate students, including the founders of Tulane's Jewish Law Student Association. We're recruiting Jewish leaders for our event Sunday, October 19th, so it was especially great to have a chance to meet so many of the influential people in this community. Tonight, Gill, Jon and I met more of these fascinating people at the Jewish Federation's Newcomers event.
Please see the posting below with event times and details. Everything will be taking place in the lawn (behind) the Rosa Keller Library:
4300 S. Broad Street (Broad and Napoleon)
New Orleans, LA, 70125
And please let us know by email (moishenola[AT]gmail) if you'd like to be involved with the Broadmoor Service Project October 19th. There's limited space, so let us know soon, and send us your name and contact information.
We have a new listserv, at http://groups.google.com/group/moishenola. If you'd like to join, you can add yourself or email us at moishenola[AT]gmail and we'll add you.
Shana Tova, and have a beautiful week--
