“Jewish tradition teaches that undoing for 24 hours each week allows us to appreciate our accomplishments of the previous week and to re-energize ourselves for the upcoming week. In truth, undoing is not an act of passivity. Rather, it is a creative movement in which we are able to focus inwards and to revitalize our creative juices. I am so glad that that the UNDO movement has broadened this notion introduced over three thousand years ago. Here’s to another three thousand years of undoing!” (Rabbi Adam Mintz)
It’s the end of summer, so we are indulging in a little adventure – parasailing in Marina Del Rey.

Details here.
Step back a mere 200 million years and experience a real life land of the lost at the Conservatory of Flowers’ latest exhibition – Plantosaurus Rex. Experience Jurassic Park yourself by wandering through a landscape of giant ferns and conifers, where you just might stumble upon a model dinosaur. Details here.
Get yourself to Governors Island this Labor Day weekend while it’s still open. If food festivals, interactive sculptures and kayaking aren’t enough, hop on over to the NYC Unicycle Festival for some one-wheel madness. Observe world-famous riders, or try it yourself.
