Annual Have-a-Heart for the Holidays Gift Drive - Westchester Jewish Community Services
Through December 15, 2012 - White Plains

Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) kicks off its annual "Have a Heart for the Holidays" Gift Drive. When the project began in 2001, several hundred gifts were contributed for children, ages infant to teen, served by WJCS. Last year, thanks to the generosity of individuals throughout Westchester, more than 1,000 gifts were collected. Most of the children served by are from local families living below the federal poverty level, and in many cases, the gifts they receive are the only presents these children get during the holidays. Sponsors may choose an age or sex of a child to buy a gift for. Often, the older children request gift cards to national chain stores such as Best Buy and Target, so they can pick out their own gifts; gift cards in denominations ranging from $15-25 are some of the more popular requests. Anyone interested in sponsoring a child/children should contact Ms. Lewis at 761-0600 X222 or email mlewis@wjcs.com.

The Nod - The Nuyorican Poets Cafe
Through December 16, 2012 - New York

In THE NOD: Tony dealt with the hardships life threw at him with a simple accepting nod. A nod that said "everything's gonna be alright." Even if it wasn't or wouldn't be. Nodding was his way of coping -- coping with the kinds of fears universally shared. As a kid, the nod was a strategy to deal with his ‘crazy mama's’ seductive ways. As a grownup, he nodded to bluff his way in and out of lucrative writing gigs; nodded, as he would veer towards then away from the not quite available woman he loved. Over and over with self-effacing candor and deceit, he pretended to hold it all together, even as he felt it slipping from his grasp. Consumed by mortifying panic, suffocating breathe, and an epic aversion to the feelings he most feared and desired -- intolerable life affirming feelings like joy, serenity, fulfillment -- Tony started springing leaks not even Hans Brinker could plug. With little or no help from family or friends, doctors or shamans, therapists or gurus, he squandered his Hollywood wealth -- emptied his pockets, shelved his career. What happened then? He stumbled upon personal fortune. And now Tony sifts thru, picks up, and rearranges the pieces in this hilariously painful solo-performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. THE NOD plays the following schedule: Sunday, October 28th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 7pm Sunday, November 4th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, November 6th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 7pm Saturday, November 10th, 2012 7pm Sunday, November 11th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 7pm Saturday, November 24th, 2012 7pm Sunday, November 25th, 2012 3pm Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 7pm Saturday, December 1st, 2012 7pm Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 3pm Tuesday, December 4th, 2012 7pm Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 7pm Satur
