OK, SO WHAT’S ON MY PLATE??

From light and refreshing to totally decadent, we've got the dessert you’ve been craving. While we’ll be hosting some familiar faces, we also have new vendors making their DG debut! Many vendors will be creating exclusive treats only available at the festival. We will have over 20 vendors! Here’s a sneak a peek at some of the vendors:

  • From pies to cakes and everything in between, Baked is known for their classic American bakery treats. For our event, Baked is bringing exclusive party animal cheesecake bars on a stick! Dessert Goals is the only place for you to score these cheesecake cuties. They will also be serving their divine very vanilla sprinkle cake. YAS!

  • One of our new vendors, Stax is bringing stackable sweets in the form of Cremellas (aka donut ice cream sandwiches). Yeah, you read that right—Donut. Ice cream. Sandwiches.

The HUMP! Film Festival

HUMP_1200x630.png

The HUMP! Film Festival has been bringing audiences a new kind of porn since 2005. The festival features short dirty movies—each less than five minutes—all created by people who aren’t porn stars but want to be one for a weekend. The filmmakers and stars show us what they think is hot and sexy, creative and kinky, their ultimate turn-ons and their craziest fantasies. Our carefully curated program is a cornucopia of body types, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks, and fetishes—all united by a shared spirit of sex-positivity. HUMP! is a celebration of creative sexual expression. You will see films at HUMP! that shock you. You will see films at HUMP! that make you laugh. And you will see films at HUMP! that turn you on. You will also be touched by the sincerity and vulnerability with which these films are lovingly made. HUMP!’s main mission is to change the way America sees—and makes and shares—porn.

Project Kesher: 30th Anniversary Benefit

download (1).png

Problem

 The Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, ending an era of institutionalized anti-Semitism and more than seventy years of religious repression.  Almost 30 years later, the emerging Jewish community continues to face many challenges. With an estimated 500,000 - 2 million Jews remaining in the region, building strong Jewish identity and developing communal leadership is essential to the future of Jewish life in the region.

Jewish women lacked the Jewish knowledge, formal training and feminist empowerment to lead social change and better their circumstances and those around them.

Solution

Project Kesher’s programs have successfully engaged a new generation of Jewish women and girls in the region. From teenage youth groups, to programs on college campuses, to working with young professionals, our programs energize young women through a unique combination of Jewish content and social activism.
