Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I attended my niece’s Bat Mitzvah (my first experience in a synagogue) and it was a truly mind blowing and moving experience. I also loved seeing my niece swarmed by people who love her! What a gift! Meanwhile, let’s get going with the week – if you’re looking for something to do, enjoy this curated roundup of event ideas for Monday through Friday!
