The parade was great this year…the weather cooperated, there were some really creative presentations, and tons of people lined Fifth Avenue to celebrate Israel. Plus, I was interviewed for local television and was able to plug Jewlicious and mention the Jewlicious @ the Beach conference. (These things only happen to me…)
As I reunited with old childhood friends who had four kids each, and wondered why my yeshiva high school suddenly had a co-ed band, one thought kept running through my mind: why am I the only one here wearing a Jewlicious tee shirt? Somehow, in a sea of organizationally themed tees, I imagined a world where many NY-area Jews felt confident enough to proclaim their Jewliciousness.
Next year, a Jewlicious float perhaps?
