Are you a storyteller?  Consider “pitching” us a story!  

 

Jewish Teen Learning Connection is excited to present our second annual evening of Jewish storytelling -  Mishegas.  An Evening of Storytelling.  Modeled after NPR’s The Moth and Hartford’s own Speak Up, the evening will feature a diverse group of local storytellers sharing true stories about a funny, joyous or significant Jewish moment in their lives.

Save the date, Saturday Night, March 4, 2017, you won’t want to miss it.

 

Do you have a Jewish story to tell?  We're looking for 5 or 6 storytellers of all ages, experiences, and backgrounds to share their stories.  So, please, pitch us your story!

 

There are so many ways to express and experience being Jewish.  What's your's?   Did you used to help your Bubbie make gefilte fish from scratch?  Or do prefer going to the deli for corned beef on rye or bagels and a schmear?   You have a story to tell!   Did you love (or hate) leading services for your bar/bat mitzvah?  Do you kvell at sounding the grogger with your grandchild every time Haman's name is mentioned during Purim?  We want to hear about it!   Do you remember the first time you nervously read the four questions at the Passover seder?  Did you experience something exceptional as you wandered through the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem?  What magical or funny thing happened as you stood beneath the chuppah and danced the Hora at your wedding?  Tell us more.  We want to hear your Jewish story.

 

Pitching a story is easy.  Simply send us an email with a brief description of who you are and a short 5-6 sentence summary of the story you want to tell.   It's really important for us to know the entire story, so please include a beginning, middle and end.  Make sure to describe most important moments in your story, but you don't have to include all of the details.  You can fill those in later.

 

We'll only be accepting pitches until Tuesday, January 31st, so send one in today!
