I'm very excited to say that we've outgrown the Stanford Hillel, and will thus be moving to Congregation Etz Chayim in Palo Alto! This starts in June 2013.
Just about a week and a half until the next Mardi Gras themed party on March 2! Beads, masks, kosher gumbo, and lots of dancing! All of the details, as usual, are on the Nirkoda! @Stanford page. See you there!
We've got themes for the next three parties! Tu B'shevat (Jan. 19) -- so lots of fresh and dried fruit to nosh on. Mardi Gras (Mar. 2) -- a small homage to New Orleans with some Cajun snacks. Lag B'Omer (Apr. 27) -- I promise we won't light any bonfires in the middle of the dance floor, just snacks and decorations.
Details, as always, can be found on the Nirkoda! @Stanford page.
I'm getting very excited for the first Nirkoda! @Stanford party!!!! It's just over a week away, on Sat., Oct 6. Do you have your luau themed outfit picked out yet? I do! Anyway, please let me know if you have comments or questions, or if you just want to say that you're excited, too. As always, details are available on this website. See ya there!
Subbing for Karina
This week, I'm subbing for Karina. I'll be teaching Kol Yom (for video, click here) and then playing your favorites to dance the night away. Typical format (beginners, teaching around 8:45, fruit set, 6 partner sets) — make sure to bring your requests!
Nirkoda! is a semi-regular (about every 6 weeks) Israeli Dance party held at Stanford Hillel. Dancing starts at 8:30pm and continues until midnight. It is an open-dancing style harkada with requests, DJ'd by Aaron Alpert, with little or no teaching. It's $10 general admission, free for children and students under 25. (No one will be turned away for lack of funds; if this is financially burdensome, pay what you can.) If you have questions, email me.
First off, I'm very excited to announce the start of NIRKODA! @STANFORD. I'm going to be hosting an Israeli Dance party on Saturday nights at Stanford Hillel semi-regularly (about every 6 weeks). Details (and flyers and emails and Facebook invites and a dedicated page on this website) will be forthcoming, but for now, the tentative start date is October 6. There next two will be in early December and mid-January. It's an event you won't want to miss!
I am currently building my site. I've just installed the theme (Black Premium, by Saran Quardz). I'll be customizing it and adding content in the coming weeks.
For now, please email me if you have any questions.
