A Taste of Honey: Call for Course Proposals

A Taste of Honey 2012:  The Jewish community’s annual, exciting, social, cultural, and educational event is scheduled take place

Sunday 12 Feb 2012 @ Albuquerque JCC

A Taste of Honey 2012 will offer an opportunity to savor Jewish life at its best and to explore our understanding of Judaism and the Jewish experience.

The ATOH 2012 Keynote Speaker will be author, songwriter, and Yiddishist Michael Wex, who is (perhaps) best known for his New York Times best-selling book on the history and development of Yiddish, Born to Kvetch.

The follow-up, Just Say Nu, took up where Kvetch left off - providing vocabulary for those wanting to try out their Yiddish.

How to Be a Mentsh (and Not a Shmuck), Wex's latest non-fiction book, is a manual for pursuing happiness while still acting with integrity, honor, and compassion.

Two sets of mini-courses will follow Michael Wex's Keynote Address, covering  such areas as Jewish Culture; Religious Ideas and Practices; Jewish Communities Around the World; Crypto-Jews / Conversos; Current Events; Israel / Mideast; History; Humor; Food; Spiritual Practices; Music; Art; Holocaust; Yiddish; Dance / Movement; and Jewish Life Events / Holidays.

If you would like to present a mini-course, please contact

Phyllis Wolf      (505) 348-4500
