National Hug a Jew Day!!!


Have you hugged a Jew lately?  If not, you might have missed a golden opportunity. 

On Monday Feb. 2, Jews around the world embraced each other with outstretched arms and G-rated physical contact.  Unfortunately, I kept to myself yesterday and now have wait a whole year to hug a Jew - I might as well be shomer negiah.

From the official facebook page:

*Every Jew that you see you must address with a hug

*This is an events for everyone around the world, Jews and non-Jews to hug Jews.

*This group is for anyone to join, that is except Jew-haters.

*Jew, in this event includes any sect or part of Jewishness (half, quarter, traditional, conservative, reform, orthodox, chareide, chabad, ALL JEWS INCLUDED).

* If someone has something that they want to say about Jews, do not post it here, send me a message and we will talk about it.

*Remember, invite all your friends and lastly everyone, HAPPY HUGGING!!

*** some religious jewish people can not touch the other sex so be careful if you have the slightest doubt you may want to ask them if you can hug them

you can hug the same person more than once and can recieve more than one hug. please take as many pictures as you can and send them to me and i will post the ones i think are the best, which would be most of them!


P.S. hug a jew day is the first monday of Feb. every year from now on!
