  1. This time AISH faltered from their ususally excellent marketing. The questions are intrusive, given that they’re promoting this as a networking for Jewish women type event, with the intent of it being outreach. This is one time that the UJA/Federation actually could trump Aish – they really have their “Young Leadership” programs down to a science.

  2. …and in my opinion, anything advertising femninity this hard in a kiruv setting is offering less-than first class judaism, too.

  3. Anything Pink and Fabulous seems clunky to me. Anything advertising Fabulous Femininity is trying too darn hard. A woman is a woman, and doesn’t have to DO anything to prove that to herself or anyone else. We live in an age with no sense of self confidence; I should think that gender would be one thing that would be clear in this life.

  4. It feels clunky to me, to try to the whole pink Fabulous Jewish Girl in New York thing — clearly trying to attract Reform / secular Jews — and then ask right off the bat about parents’ Jewish experiences and history. Yes, I know, it needs to be addressed at one point (esp for the Reform Jews who may not have a Jewish mother, or a Jewish mother converted under Reform). It also is very clunky to ask parents’ occupation. Does it matter, at this point? Does it ever matter? It reinforces the stereotype of Jews that your target is explicitly trying to move away from.
