If you have ever wanted to support a project called Jewish Girls are Easy, now is your chance to get in on the ground floor. Columbia MFA student Charlotte Glynn is raising money to create a short comedy about Passover. Tova, the fiesty protagonist, tries to host a seder despite a vanished brother, a missing brisket, a hickey shaped like the Virgin Mary, a one-night-stand who thinks he’s witnessed a miracle and will not leave her side, and interference from drug dealers. This sounds like it could possibly be the best Passover film since When do we eat? (Hat tip to Yo Yenta)
Cantor Deborah Jacobson writes about her experience facilitating JWI’s Strong Girls, Healthy Relationships curriculum with 8th grade girls for the past 5 years at Temple Ahavat Shalom, Palm Harbor, Florida. She asks, "If we don’t talk about these issues, how can we help our girls identify warning signs and prevent dating violence and abuse?"
The Groggers have a new song and music video called "Jewcan Sam (A Nose Job Love Song)" We have writtenanawfullotabout nose jobs on Jewesses with Attitude, so it's interesting to see something from a Jewish guy's perspective. And, if we're being honest, this song is just super catchy.
