/Jewish Alliance/Jewish AllianceWhen there are children around and it’s time to have some fun, we’ve got the list for you. Are the grandkids in town? Do your kids have some free time? Fall is a perfect time for outdoor activities. Then, the weather turns and what do you do? Our area has a wealth of things that can be enjoyed by all ages. You may want to try a few of these on your own – no children needed!

Even Roger Williams Park Zoo has a sukkah for the holiday. It’s located across from the Meller-Danforth Education Center. We’re interested in what your sukkah looks like. Send us a photo, and we might just run it in The Voice (be sure to include your name and contact information).

While most books on the Arab-Israeli conflict focus on politics and war, Dion Nissenbaum tells about life along the cease-fire line that divided Jerusalem for 19 years and that was supplanted by ever more daunting cultural, emotional and political barriers separating Arab and Jew in his book “A Street Divided: Stories From Jerusalem’s Alley of God.”
