Firebird/Jar-Ptitsa presents our first event of the 2013-2014 season!

Meet The Unexpected: Magic In Judaism
Date: Sunday, October 6, 2013
Location: Norman’s Landscape in Central Park at West 86th Street
Time: 11:00am-1:00pm

Please join us for a pizza picnic! Adults will enjoy a presentation by a special guest Rabbi Manuel Gold on Jewish magic
and children will be busy with Arlekino Theater Troupe magical activities!

What remnant of magic still exists in the Mezuzah? Why are we told not to “cross” our fingers or “knock on wood”? Does Kol Nidre prayer have a magical origin?

Come to find out the answers to these questions and many others from the unexpected side of Judaism with a master teacher and author of “Magic, Mezuzahs and Spice Boxes.”

Cost is $10 per individual or $30 for a family of 3 or more. Please register at
