The LES Jewish Conservancy is teaming up with real estate guru Michael Bolla for a big event this coming weekend — a 24 hour immersion on the Lower East Side. The Jewish Adventure or “Shabbaton,” includes performances from MODI and Mo Kiss, prayer sessions in several LES shuls, talks from local rabbis, guided tours of the neighborhood and special kosher meals.
Bolla has made no secret of his desire to attract Jews back to the Lower East Side. It’s part of his marketing strategy at the Madison Jackson, the condo conversion that will (apparently) hit the open market sometime soon. Click here for more information.
