Jewish Resources for the Winter

A Starter Kit



Jewish Federation

Jewish Federation of New Hampshire Programs A hodgepodge of programs. Some look delightful, others are, let’s say, curious. Worth a peak.

Virtual J An online series programs from the North American JCC’s. Out of Toronto Ontario.

Z3 Visions of a Shared Future A Hanukkah conference on the Israeli-Diaspora future, with daily programs. I believe the cost is $36. Sponsored by the Oshman JCC in Palo Alto, with many partners.

Family Programs

Jewish Life in Your Jewish Family, URJ An ongoing series of active programs from the Union for Reform Judaism for young families. A great series to share with your children or grandchildren. From the folks who invented effective Jewish education in North America. The URJ (formally know as UAHC) has set the bar for non-day school based Jewish learning for almost a hundred years. Worth checking out.


Jewish Broadcasting Service As many of you know, our own Bob Selig is a long time supporter and board member.


Podcasts from the URJ and Hebrew Union College Reform Judaism sticks its toe into the podcasting world.

Top 20 Jewish Podcasts You Must Follow in 2020 It’s a big, comprehensive list, with many excellent programs. A user alert: Podcasts often have youngish producers and hosts, so they are often edgier than NPR programing – and less stuffy.

Jewish Film Festivals

Jewish Film Festivals A site that lists online Jewish film festivals and other information on streaming Jewish films. It doesn’t have 2021 programs yet, but it’s clearly the best aggregating site out there.

Lectures, Concerts

92nd St Y NYC The programs of NYC’s 92nd St Y. A legendary venue. The programs are ticket based and the price is akin to a live but not insanely priced program.

My Jewish Learning Samuel Bronfman Foundation, William Davidson Foundation, pluralistic, well curated

Sixth & I DC Jewish Cultural Center

Jewish Books

Jewish Book Council Lists A mind numbingly comprehensive list of current Jewish books

Jewish Book Club Suggestions A great list of current, very readable Jewish books

Book Talks
