 Sign Up By January 31st for Early Bird Price!!!

Yes, this is Abq Jew Palooza! Event Number 1. Abq Jew has not forgotten Event Number 2 (KlezmerQuerque!). He simply wanted to be sure you have enough time to catch the Early Bird Price!


The Keynote Speaker will be Judith Fein.

Award-winning international travel journalist, author and blogger Judith  Fein is launching her new book, The Spoon from Minkowitz: A Bittersweet  Roots Journey to Ancestral Lands.

Be prepared to laugh, be moved, challenged and inspired as Judith reveals insights and shows photos from her own recent journey to Russia and the Ukraine.

With great intellect, humor and heart, she shares the world left behind by our ancestors, who seemingly passed into oblivion. But Judith discloses the secrets of how our ancestors still live within us, and how they continue to impact and influence our lives.

Violin accompaniment provided by Beth Cohen, Chazzan / Music  Director of Congregation Nahalat Shalom and KlezmerQuerque! organizer.
