Staying in the Bay...Submitted by AaronAlpert on 14 April 2014 - 11:51am
I hope you'll excuse a bit of self-indulgence on my part. A few of you know that over the past 7 months or so, I've been applying to various graduate schools, and some of those schools were not in other locations (L.A., Boston). There was a distinct possibility I would have to move and give up Nirkoda! Well, last Thursday, I accepted admission at Stanford, which means that I'll be staying in the Bay Area, and I plan to continue Nirkoda! on Saturday without any changes. I'll be setting up the rest of the 2014 dates and announcing them here, on Facebook, and via email. So, yalla!
Next Nirkoda! party about 1 week away!Submitted by AaronAlpert on 20 February 2013 - 1:21pm
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!
Themes for Jan., Mar., and Apr. Parties!Submitted by AaronAlpert on 8 January 2013 - 7:32pm
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.

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!
