It’s ironic. The easier it becomes to communicate with people around the world, via Facebook, Skype and email, the more accessible foreign products become through online retailers and a fluid global economy, and the faster information is available about events happening across the globe, the more it seems people crave a connection to their immediate surroundings. In a time where the whole world is literally at your fingertips, there is nothing we value more than community – a sense of belonging, a sense of place, of shared values and interests, and beliefs.
TRIBE magazine is your community hub. In our physical as well as web pages, you will discover a delicious Israeli bakery 10 minutes from your house; you’ll learn about the mensches in your neighborhood who are doing incredible and inspiring things to better our world; you’ll accumulate fabulous recipes to wow your guests on special occasions; you’ll even gain some insight into your teen’s peculiar behavior or your toddler’s development.
This blog is an extension of TRIBE, and more: it’s a communal discussion board, an ongoing conversation, a place to share news, upcoming events, cool discoveries around town and thoughts about what it means to be Jewish on the outskirts of Los Angeles.
I welcome your input, thoughts, community news and suggestions on articles for TRIBE magazine. And if you really have a lot to say and would like to share it with everyone on your very own blog, please email me!
Welcome to the community. Welcome to the TRIBE.
