✰Joyous Holidays✰















☮Happy Hanukkah☮
Hanukkah is a Jewish festival. Hanukkah is also known as The Festival Of Lights, for its Miracles.
                                 

Yad Ezra V'Shulamit; provides food, clothing, psychological services and emergency relief to tens of thousands of Israeli children and their families each year.

Breaking Israel's Cycle Of Poverty, Through Charity.
Today's socio-economic environment in Israel; causes many challenges, to the day-to-day lives of many struggling families.

The consequences of this reality are devastating. Hundreds of thousands of children and families go without eating three proper meals per day. However, unfortunately it does not end with hunger. Hunger leads to depression, anxiety and puts kids at risk.

Yad Ezra V’Shulamit was founded in 1998 with the initial goal of providing immediate hunger relief to dozens of Israeli families in need.

While this goal was the primary focal point and will always be considered to be part of the organization’s future donations, it was not the only aspect of the long term plan. This would go on; to include, after school educational programs, academic enrichment via personalized tutoring, professional guidance, and activities for teens at risk.

Assisting Jews in the Former Soviet Union since 1975
The Adopt a Bubbe (And Or, A Zayde) program reaches out to elderly Jews and the handicapped in Ukraine and Belarus.

"Action" recruits coordinators; who know their Jewish community, and asks them to find the most vulnerable Jewish retirees who need help.

Many live on their own in poor conditions and some are unable to leave their homes.
With "Action" funds, coordinators purchase and deliver fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese and meats directly to their homes.

When needed, "Action" has also provided eyeglasses or hearing aids, a lamp to read by, or coal for heat in the winter months.

One could almost say that; Action For Post-Soviet Jewry, works with clients one shovel or one fresh chicken, or one pair of eyeglasses at a time. I , have no association with this organization. I just think it's a great charity.

Merry Christmas Joe Just in Case; You Forgot, Again




I Celebrate Christmas And Hanukkah. I’m ½ Irish and ½ Jewish. I Celebrate Kwanzaa too; “In Spirit,” with my friends.

I'm; “Second Generation,” American. My Grandparents were Immigrants.

I had an Irish Mother and A Jewish Father. 

My Irish Grandfather; Michael Murphy, worked on the Central Railroad, in Jersey City, NJ (100 years ago). Unloading box cars with a big hook.
He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter!

My Jewish Grandmother; Sarah, was a Orthodox Rabbi's, Daughter. She and her family immigrated, from Latvia to New York City about 1880.

My Grandfather Nathan; came all the way from Russia as a young man, all by himself! He had a Brother already living in Connecticut. Around the 1880's too.

I know he, (Nathan) and my Grandmother were married before 1888. Because he always said my Father's older Sister Florence, was born during the Great Blizzard of 88Photos

I learned how to use a computer for the first time in March, 2008. Never touched one before. But; I'm fast, on a typewriter.

I started blogging, because I wanted to help our Troops and Veterans and The Young People Everywhere.

Politically; the good of the people, is my concern, as a Sociologist.
I'm from New Jersey aka The Garden State, but not called that, recently.
I lived in Northern NJ (Bayonne, Hudson County) and Southern NJ (Bricktown, Ocean County).

Having seen how beautiful untouched nature is and then seeing how big energy destroys, I'm an environmentalist.

I was always the way I am now.

From when I was a baby until 2nd grade (when we moved down to South Jersey). I spent a lot of time being dragged around in one of my Father's bars.

When I was little; 5, years old, some of the local/neighborhood guys (customers), used to scream every time I walked in the door with my Mother.

Epithets like; "Oh no, the holy terrors here, or "Oh no, it's the little hurricane". They had several, names for me. Total exaggerations!

I promptly squirted them, with my little red water gun.
My Mother would say "don't shoot the boys with your water gun", but I did anyway.

I didn't want to even be there. I would have rather been home, coloring in my coloring books with my 64 box of Crayolas or watching tv.

I wasn’t,  anti-social. I had tons of Sailor friends who used to take me to the toy store and buy me anything I wanted.

No one was allowed to have a beer until they did.
Well ok one, or two.

Guess that’s why I like to tell people about organizations like, Toys For Tots. I want, all Children to be able to experience the joys of childhood. One being; getting a toy, they like.

The bar was about 5 blocks from our town's; then, Naval base. I knew Sailors from all over the world. My best friend, was from the Cayman Islands.

I wasn't spoiled either. Half my toys used to always disappear. I had lots of poor cousins. One of my Aunt's, had 10 children.

As everyone knew my Father and Mother, everywhere. They all knew me on sight. So I could never get away with anything. Even though I did get attention and away with a lot.

The ICB Traveler Equality Project
The Irish Chaplaincy Project; is a charity, that provides services and support to excluded vulnerable and isolated people; in the Irish Community in Britian.

The reality of life in Britain today for many Irish emigrants is not the migrant’s dream. Many of those who came to England in the 1950s and 1960s face isolation and severe poverty; over 1,000 Irish men and women are in custody; and Irish Travelers remain among the most marginalized groups in society.

World Movement To Divest From Fossil Fuels 
Institutions; immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel companies, and divest from direct ownership and any co-mingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.

Educational and religious institutions, city and state governments, and other institutions that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels. 200 publicly-traded companies hold the vast majority of listed coal, oil and gas reserves. Those are the companies, to divest from. (See link above, for more info).

Momentum on Fossil Fuel Divestment Grows As Harvard Professors, Desmond Tutu Call For Action
South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu called for an anti-apartheid-style boycott and disinvestment campaign against the industry for its role in driving climate change.

Nearly 100 members of the faculty at Harvard University released an open letter calling on the Ivy League school to sell off its interests in oil, gas and coal companies.

Appalachia-Mountaintop Removal (MTR), One Of America’s Worst Environmental Crimes!







US domestic gas production is on the rise because of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a controversial method of extracting natural gas from shale rock by pumping millions of gallons of water mixed with sand and chemicals underground at high pressure.

Environmentalists say this gas boon threatens water supplies and pollutes air.

Now, as fracking expands around the world, so does growing resistance.

This film focuses on three countries on the new fracking front-line: South Africa, Poland, and the UK.
