Oy Vey Online - a virtual space for community
We find ourselves in a time of physical isolation which calls for an attitude of adaptability. At Oy Vey we are working towards building an inclusive, cultural and unapologetically Jewish community space in Amsterdam. Several events, courses and other programs were filling up our calendar and as the situation unfolds itself we are shifting our energies towards what is called for at these times in terms of how to build community.
Self isolation is a necessity these days, a fact of life – traditionally in Jewish life it is also seen as a good necessity (hidbodeduth in Hebrew) to go inside alone sometimes.
We want to complement the self isolation with opportunity to connect in community. The coming weeks we will upload online baking and cooking classes, virtual gatherings, online classes and more in an attempt to grow together, as a community in these special times.
