LINYC YJ Jewish Food Tour

Join LINYC YJ in a Jewish food tour on the Lower East Side. Led by the one and only Nathan Rubinger, we’ll visit historic restaurants such as The Pickle Guys and Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery! Learn about the history of the Jewish immigration and assimilation to NYC and a bit about the local synagogues. We will also stop by the site where Young Judaea was founded 110 years ago!

We suggest bringing $10-20 for yummy noshes.

New Jersey Young Judaea: Rikud-A-Thon

Dance your tuchus off with New Jersey YJ at the Rikud-a-thon overnight, our own movement’s take on charity dance marathons popularized by colleges around the country! Bring some cash to buy NEW NJ Young Judaea merchandise!

In correlation with our Women’s Health National Initiative, we will be raising money for The Pad Project, a non-profit dedicated to ending the stigma against menstruation. The project, developed from the Oscar-winning documentary, “Period. End of Sentence.” aims to supply women in developing countries with biodegradable pads made from locally sourced materials, helping these women gain independence. We will screen the documentary at the event!
