Le Programming Nouveau

Exploring new areas of programming is a favorite topic of Nathaniel's and mine. In terms of Moishe's categories, we'd like to venture more actively into Jewish Learning and Tikun Olam. With regards to Jewish Learning, we recognize that as young hip (at least, in our not-so-humble opinions) Jews, we can play a special role in making Jewish Learning exciting, accessible, and relevant to our fellow young hip Jews. Which is why we invited Adam Lavitt, a rabbinical student and member of our burning man community Sukkat Shalom to come do a program with us exploring the Torah through expressive movement, and why we've dedicated ourselves to (as we wrote about right here on the Moishe blog) preparing teachings, discussion, and other activities for our Shabbats. With regards to Tikun Olam, we’re well-aware that we have a major resource at our disposal: young, motivated, talented individuals who come together at least three times per month for purposes of, well, coming together. So we'd like to more regularly and systematically apply this major resource to community service. We've only dabbled with this so far, such as with our Sukkot at City Farm, but we know volunteer opportunities abound, like those at our local Temple Emanu-el and we understand that applying our Moishe community to the service of our broader community would both extend our programming into Tikun Olam and fulfill Moishe's recent intention to create organizational partnerships.

In more abstract terms, we'd like to infuse our programming with a sense of growth, progress, coherence, e.g. by building something as a community (like an art car or hot tub) or having a regularly-occurring event, like a book or movie series. The intention is to feel that we are cultivating something through time, rather than hosting one-off programs. And finally, as we discussed at our Open Source Programming event, we'd Love to open our programming to our community members, and enable them to create the programs they’d like to see in our community!

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

It's all about how to select a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.
