I'm part of a behavioral science program. My experiment includes a short survey. I'm trying to find people to take it; I need as many as possible. Here's the link: http://www.esurveyspro.com/Survey.aspx?id=3e285c08-c76c-47a0-b4e2-13a2766ed850

Hey, y'all.

I'm back.

I've finished my Hebrew School Musical trilogy and now I'm going back and doing edits. I've decided I'm going to go the shameless route and throw in every pun and bad joke I can to make it what it is truly destined to be: insane.

However, I'm running out of ideas besides replacing the letters on the MTA subway lines with their Hebrew equivalents and having Shlomo walk past billboards that say "Cholent: It's What's For Dinner."

Looking for one or two roomies [Jul. 25th, 2009|11:16 pm]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

I'm a musician who loves the city but would prefer to spend more time practicing than working. I'm hoping to share a single room with one or two other people (male or female.) You can find more info on me at http://www.terrydignon.com. Looking to move by Sept 1 if not before.

Does anyone here know how to say "Chinese food" in Hebrew? Wikipedia's giving me המטבח הסיני, but I'm completely useless without vowels.

And before anyone asks, this is for Hebrew School Musical 3: Senior Year where the illustrious Sadie Levy has managed to wrangle a Kosher Chinese feast for her two youngest sons Shlomo and Jamie and their girlfriends Yael and Anna. And the scene begins with them saying a bracha over Chinese food. So if anyone could help me translate (or transliterate, rather) "who has created Chinese food" that'd be wonderful.

Help! [Nov. 10th, 2008|01:14 am]

Hello, my Hebraic homies!

So despite being born and raised a member of the tribe, I never experienced the glory that was Jewish overnight camp.

I'm writing a musical, however, and the first act takes place at Camp Myrtle Wyckoff, a fictional Jewish overnight camp in East Schmaltz, New Hampshire. It's a movie musical (think "Hebrew School Musical") and in the interest of time, I'm showing the development of Yael and Shlomo's relationship through a montage of them doing fun summer camp activities.

So, friends, I'm looking for your input....

What were the highlights of YOUR Jewish overnight camp experiences?

Barack On! [Nov. 6th, 2008|04:11 pm]

Barack Obama's new Chief Of Staff is the totally rad and totally Jewish (and totally went to the same college as me and studied ballet) Rahm Emanuel.

October 17th Stand Up Fundraiser for Barack Obama! [Oct. 1st, 2008|06:23 pm]


It's crunch time in the presidential election, and there are still a lot of voters out there who haven't decided either way. Barack Obama and Joe Biden are working hard to win over the swing voters. Several rockin' comics and I want to help!

I know you've already dropped some cash on Obama buttons that haven't arrived and a shirt that came in the wrong size. Don't hold that against him. And, more importantly, don't let that keep you from our "last push" fundraiser! There will be comedy, music, a special video message from someone that we'd like to believe is the real VP nominee for the GOP, and a raffle with some pretty nice prizes!

Oh, and a Republican elephant pinata!

So, come one, come all to SNC: Switzerland Neutral Comedy's Un-Neutral Fundraiser for Obama/Biden!

Let's make change with comedy!

Introducing Tirtzah: A Community for Frum Queer Women [May. 30th, 2008|11:09 am]

Tirtzah: The Blog

Tirtzah: The E-mail List

We are a community of frum queer women who gather to celebrate and study our yiddishkeit. We are committed to the value of shleimut (wholeness) and to supporting one another in observing a meaningful, integrated, honest and joyful Jewish life.

We started this blog and e-mail list in order to share our stories of weaving together the queer and Jewish (and secular!) parts of our lives and explorations of halacha, community, dignity, yiddishkeit, gender identity and sexual orientation.

If you are a lesbian, bisexual or queer identified woman who is religious, observant and/or Orthodox… or is on the path to becoming more halachically observant… we welcome you to join our e-mail discussion group. In addition to our e-mail discussion group and this blog, we hold events in the New York City area.

Are you a religious queer Jewish woman with a story to share? We are looking for guest posters, so if you would like to write something for this blog, please e-mail us at tirtzahcommunity at gmail.com
