Purim, Pesach, and beyond with Oy Vey!
It’s Adar, a month of mirth according to our Jewish horoscope. We plan to celebrate with a Purim Shabbat and maybe even by dressing up in costume. Speaking of costumes: Have you ever felt like an imposter in Jewish spaces?
We know we have. Whether it’s because we are unfamiliar with the prayers or community or have no family tradition to guide us, most of us have felt uncomfortable in a Jewish space.
We are discussing this at the next face-to-face session for Het Joods Manifest. We need your voice! We we want to reach at least 300 Jewish people in the Netherlands and you should be one of them! So whether you can face-to-face or online please sign up to be part of the discussion. Your voice is important! Find out more here.
Adar and beyond…Events are grouped by type for your convenience.
Do you like kvetching as much as we do? Do you want to discuss Jewish ideas with us and others? It’s fun. We promise.

G-d produced ק [Kuf], predominant in Mirth, crowned, combined, and formed Pisces in the world, Adar in the year, and the spleen in the human.
