Upcoming events


Jewish LIVE

In early March of 2020, as one Jewish event after another was suddenly being cancelled due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the team behind the Judaism Unbound podcast realized that we were about to experience months in which not one in-person Jewish event would take place. And many events that would have been in person—ranging from synagogue services to large conferences—would have to migrate to the digital landscape to which we migrated some years ago. And we knew that physical distancing would bring loneliness and a sense of social isolation for many people.

We also saw that this situation created an opportunity for many Jews, and non-Jews, to connect to Jewish experiences that they might have been intimidated to join in person. And it created many other opportunities: to find commonality and community across distance; to create experiences for others; to re-think elements of Jewish life that may not have been working so well before but that had inertia.

We thought that we could help by creating a port of entry into live Jewish events in cyberspace. Think of jewishLIVE as the international airport or as the Grand Central Station serving the new land of online Judaism.

Our mission is to help you find what you’re looking for and get you there quickly. This web site combines a calendar events with beaming from “Star Trek” because if you discover that something is happening right now, you can just go there in a single click!


My Jewish Learning on Zoom

As the coronavirus pandemic forces many of us into our homes, new opportunities are being created every day to connect virtually. Welcome to MJL’s Hub. The Hub is a space that includes daily information about live content from all 70 Faces Media publications, including My Jewish Learning, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Kveller, Alma, and The Nosher, in addition to a wide spectrum of other great online Jewish events. Our hope is that the Hub will connect people with some of the incredible learning opportunities now accessible across the globe. All times are ET (Eastern Time).

Israeli Day Parade

What began as a few thousands walking down Riverside Drive, NY in honor of the youthful State of Israel in 1965 has today become a massive parade of roughly 30,000 participants marching down Fifth Avenue in celebration and solidarity.


American Sephardic Music Festival

World class musicians perform dynamic and diverse musical numbers at this event hosted by the American Sephardi Federation and directed by David Serero. The Festival takes place over the course of three days at The Center for the Jewish History in New York City.

La Fabrica @lafabricapty is an excellent Israeli-Moroccan restaurant in Panama City where a guy named Itai prepares the food and a guy named Chai prepares the beer. According to food critic @gilhovavisrael these beers are some of the best he's had in his 56 years.

The photographed dish is the Mega Shakshuka, made with precision and high quality ingredients.

Next time you find yourself on a plane to Panama, this should definitely be on your restaurant list!
