The new year so far: Climate change, devastation, organizing, community. Oh yeah, and elections. We are grateful for all that we have, all that we have been spared, and all that we can share...Time to take a breath, say a prayer, and eat a persimmon.

NOVEMBER with Charming Hostess includes a benefit for people displaced by Sandy, and Hardly Strictly Klezmer.

Jewlia, Jessica Lurie, and secret special guest
Oakland House Concert to benefit Sandy relief*

*We are not sure who the money should go to--we have heard that Red Hook Initiative and Coney Island Generation Gap are doing great work, and we know that Westbeth is in need. Do you have a suggestion? Tell us!

DECEMBER brings Charming Hostess to our residency at Meridian Gallery in SF, with a new installation on teraphim. Teraphim are often translated as "household gods"--they were figures used for home worship, for divination, to seek justice and to determine authority. Participate in our installation during the day on Thursdays, or come Thursday nights for our Jewish music series. We are so excited to be at Meridian with the incomparable Dohee Lee…What an honor. See you soon for bright lights on a dark night!

Meridian Gallery Residency: Dark Nights, Bright Lights
Thursdays in December: 6, 13, 20
12PM-5PM: Participate in "Teraphim"--hepatoscopy, belomancy, text study, meditative movement, idol-contemplation and more! See website for details.
8PM: Jewish music series. Join Charming Hostess and friends as we move from Khanukah to Solstice, from mystic contemplation to sweaty dancing, from the intimate to the apocalyptic. Charming Hostess will open each evening with a short set and then be followed by Jewish luminaries who will light up this intimate space. Get apocalyptic for Khanukah!
