Dance wherever you are

The Big Idea
My idea is very simple. In order to reach Jewish all over the country, reconciling everyone with our tradition and spreading happiness all over, on ROSH HOSHANA, we should have cultural activities everywhere, showing our local talents, artists, having art exhibitions, music and dance, storytellers to show to people we are all about diversity. This day, every shull involved, would have a partnership with local leaders, Jews and non Jews, to guarantee a massive participation. This way, there won't be apologies on why not to remind this important event, and maybe some people would be so proud to be Jewish, they would get involved as sooner as they could in their local community. We have power and influence to move this project forward. We could get involve schools, synagogues, churches, hospitals and all sort of institutions able to share happiness and cultural identity.
1- We would get involve different communities, believes and political view in a unique event of faith, happiness and tradition.
2- We would inspire new communities around to do the same, and develop specific leadership to keep the project moving forward.
3- We would have opportunity to show our talents - writers, singers, dancers, artists in general. Along with, plant hope in our elderly by get them involved with their own stories and experiences.
4- We would bring our community together and at the same time to promote our values in such democratic way to everyone around.
5- We would be teaching Tolerance and guaranteeing to our next generation a safe place top BE JEWISH and to CELEBRATE LIFE AND FREEDOM.
This Is A Great Idea Because
1- There is not other project all over US promoting culture and peace by putting in spot a community, like that.
2- No other campaign would move diverse groups to make true a moment of social, religious and cultural democratic activity, where every one around, Jews and not Jews would have their own place.
3- We would have intellectuals, artists, educators and all sort of people who are decision makers in US, Jews and Not Jews, promoting the same values based on Tolerance, Peace and Dialogue.
