The Ten Days of Awesomeness

If you've been following us on Twitter or Facebook, then you know Cool Jew has been showing up lately all around the world. From the Technion in Haifa to the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem, to a whopping eight sessions at Limmud UK, and then back to the states for Schmooze: The IJPA Jewish Culture Conference, Limmud New York and more...

What more you ask? You may have heard of the Ten Days of Awe -- the days between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. Well, l'havdil, with a profound departure from that time of spiritual introspection, we're now in the Ten Days of Awesomeness. You know those sunny, yummy, playful days between one awesome festival and another: Limmud LA, which we rocked last weekend, and Jewlicious 6.0, which we'll rock starting tomorrow in Long Beach. If you're nearby, come join the fun! Read all about it and grab last-minute tickets to the fest or the Saturday night concert, jam-packed with awesomeness, at

Naturally, the miracles and wonders don't stop there! The Ten Days of Awesomeness fall in Adar, the Hebrew month of merrymaking, making this the perfect time to announce the Mamalah's Purim Giveaway. We know this little shindig may come as a surprise, so we're spelling it all out here!

The Mamalah's Purim Giveaway

In the Purim Megillah, Esther hides her Jewishness from the King. Even the name Esther means hidden. G-d is hidden in the Purim story. Sometimes your truest self is hidden, too.

But on Purim, “hiding” in costume gives you the freedom to let-it-all-hang-out and celebrate sometimes hidden aspects of who you are! What part of you do you want to party-up on Purim?
