Sommerstad, Patricia All the Little Italys Multicultural- Other,
Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
When it comes to celebrating, don’t we each have a little Italian in us? Why not celebrate your “inner Italian” with a trip to Italy right here in New York! Between 1880 and 1920, over four million Italians entered the United States. Learn how those who settled in New York’s neighborhoods made their cultural imprint on the city. With four Little Italys to visit in New York’s boroughs, there’s plenty to see and do. We’ll take a “tour” through each one, with an in-depth look at attractions, restaurants, markets, bakeries, shops; all that makes them uniquely Italian. Plus, we’ll “tour” another Little Italy in a city only two hours from New York. Complete itineraries, thorough information about each neighborhood and directions for car/public transportation/parking will all be provided. And, of course, prizes for all! Buon viaggio!

Multicultural- Other,

This offering includes the viewing of episodes from the TV series "Srugim" followed by discussions of the interpersonal and sociological issues that come up when singles from religious backgrounds seek out their soulmates. The characters in this series are absolutely delightful, and their emotions and ideologies are on display for everyone to see. Their approaches to dating range from the pedantically practical to the impulsively idealistic. The episodes are in Hebrew with English subtitles and are filled with vignettes of life in the Holy City of Jerusalem. Yet, the challenges faced by the characters are common to ordinary people at this stage of life in any milieu. The series is widely known for its balance between melodrama and lightheartedness, and won the top award for a television drama at Israel’s version of the Emmys.

(Women & Wingspan: same workshop with female-only participants) To be human is to be creative. Even so, many of us have trouble connecting to, nurturing and prioritizing our creativity. In this engaging, interactive, values-centered workshop, participants will learn strategies to connect to their internal compass and harness their innate wisdom, patience and tolerance for taking creative risks. Through individual writing and reflection, individual and group exercises, live and recorded music, and group discussion, we will cover: debunking the myths of process and perfection; sources of inspiration; embracing fear and the vulnerability of creative connection; letting comparison be inspiring instead of toxic; identifying and overcoming stumbling blocks; letting go of achievement-driven art and embracing intrinsic, soulful expression regardless of outcome; connecting one’s art to purpose; and allowing one’s unique perspective and voice to shine. No matter from which creative arena – painting, drawing, pottery, poetry, photography, music and beyond – each participant will have protected time and space to re-discover and re-commit to expressing their creative core.
