Dear Friends:   

Can you believe it's August already? Soon children will be back at school, family vacations will just be a memory, and we will be getting ready for the High Holidays. Well, before that all happens, take some time to participate in a few of the many community events that are happening this month, including Shabbat in the Park with USH, Rockin' the Rafters Shabbat with TBE, Bagels & Brainstorm with Jewish Young Adults of J. City, and don't forget Rooftop Happy Hour with Mesorah & Moishe House. 

At the end of August, synagogues will start preparing in earnest for the High Holidays, so this month is a good time to visit a local synagogue that you may be curious about & see if they are the right "shidduch" (match) for you and your family. That will help to ensure that Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are as enjoyable and meaningful as possible. 

Finally, we have now confirmed the new date for the Fall Hoboken Arts Festival, to be held on Sunday, September 25, 2016 from 11am-6pm. Don't miss this event, which is a great hit with children and adults alike with food, music, and lots of booths from businesses around the County. Be sure to stop by the HudsonJewish table (usually on Washington Street between 1st & 2nd Streets right next to the USH booth), to meet our volunteers and schmooze a little. Hope to see you then!

The HudsonJewish JBN meetings are currently on hiatus while we seek a new liaison to help head this program, with the support of HudsonJewish. The group meets monthly in the morning in Jersey City, and provides an opportunity for business leaders and professionals to make meaningful contacts with high-impact networking and referrals to help grow your business. Business card exchange and discussion of haves/needs in your business.
