What is Sunday Streets?

Sunday Streets (also called “Open Streets”) closes streets to automobile traffic for a day so that people may use the space for other physical and social activities. The streets become parks as people replace car traffic. People walk, bike, skate and dance and play. Everyone from businesses and community organizations to musicians and artists use the space creatively, engaging the public and providing spontaneity and discovery.

Sustainable Bliss: Pesach Stadlin Book Reading & Music
A book event like no other... Sustainable Bliss: A Paradigm Shift by Pesach Dahvid Stadlin Thursday September 8 at 7:30pm Afikomen Judaica 3042 Claremont Ave. Berkeley 7:30-8: Gathering and Book Signing 8-9:30 Selected readings from the book with follow up sacred conversations, In between readings there will be sacred song and a Jewish Native flute meditation.  $5 at the Door Sustainable Bliss: A Paradigm Shift, by Pesach Dahvid Stadlin Sustainable Bliss is a celebration of the great mystery and the great questions about the great "what's going on." It has been called a worldly Jewish "Be Here Now" for seekers of all stripes. Come on a Siddhartha-like quest across the Americas on the "Topsy Turvy Jewish Climate Change Bus," and join an activist tree-sit hundreds of feet aloft in a redwood forest slated to be clear-cut. The short essays in Stadlin's memoir bring us into extraordinary adventures, from life in a riverside Guatemalan orphanage to wartime in Israel, running for cover from searing shards of missile-rain and learning to pray for peace. Most importantly, this book promises to take you to places inside yourself that may be waiting to be explored. Bio: Pesach Dahvid Stadlin aims to be a servant of creator and creation, currently living as a Rabbinical student in Jerusalem. He is Spiritual Director of Eden Village Camp. For many years he worked for the Elijah Interfaith Institute and, prior to that, the Teva Learning Alliance. He is a Jerusalem Peacemaker, song leader, and spiritual wilderness guide. Pesach recently published his adventures and insights in his first book, Sustainable Bliss: A Paradigm Shift. PesachStadlin.com
