Final Montague Summer Space Sunday

This just in from Montague BID – the schedule for Sunday’s final Summer Space.  Get ready the Heights Players will be performing and there will be volleyball and skateboarding.

Update: 9/27 Due to rain here’s the new schedule:
It’s raining! We’re shifting some of the activities for Montague Street’s Summer Space event to the late afternoon, when it’s supposed to dry out a bit. See below for a revised schedule:

12:00 volleyball (as scheduled)
3:30 Heights Players perform excerpts from “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”
4:00 all-ages parade of decorated bikes, trikes, scooters and strollers
4:30 kids yoga from Yoga People

All-day activities (skateboarding, drawing lessons, chess, basketball, face painting, outdoor lounge, sidewalk sales, etc.) will be offered from 3 to 5.

New times are, of course, weather permitting! Look for notice boards along the street with revised information!

    The timing of this event is quite insensitive to the Jewish Community. The Jewish High Holidays ( 3 days per year) are RoshHashana and Yom Yippur. The second day of this event was on Rosh Hashana and the third event is erev(right before )Yom Kippur. The planners of this event the merchants many of whom are Christian and Muslim need education in diversity training. As for me I will be taking my shopping elsewhere.

  • anon

    I would suggest that out of respect for the Jewish Communitty this event either be held on another day or conclude at 2pm this Sunday. It is a small price to pay for the oversight made by the planners. Can this be communicated to Chelsea

  • agnostic

    anon and anon, does the event interfere with your ability to celebrate the holidays?

  • anon

    yes i need to get my kids home to prepare and do not need them wanting to go to a street fair 2 blocks from my house.. How would Christians feel about a street fair held on Thursday before Good Friday or Saturday before Easter Sunday

  • travy

    wow god can’t compete with a street fair? maybe he (she?) should offer face painting and discount cosmetics?

  • anon

    I will not engage in this nonsence.. even the Montague St. Merchants.. repect their Jewish neigbors or they do not. You know there are other streets to shop on. Have a good day

  • RatNYC

    I frankly think christians wouldn’t give a rat’s butt.

  • Heights

    Anon – it is someone’s holiday practically every day. Should none of us be able to have fun because it’s the day before a holiday. I’m a Christian and if my family can’t attend a street fair because it’s the eve of a holiday, so be it. Heaven forbid the children should have to learn that sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

  • agnostic

    “…and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil….”

  • GHB

    anon, try doing what I do when the high holy days arrive. I tell the kids that after 4 or 5:00, there will be no more (street fairs, television, football, etc.) Simple!
    Oh, and I don’t think that anyone would mind a Saturday-before-Easter street fair. And why would there ever be a Thursday street fair?

  • Monty

    @anon, why don’t you also complain about businesses not respecting the Sabbath by closing Friday afternoon until Sunday? In there interests of Christians and Muslims, they should really be closed every Thursday through Sunday to avoid offending anyone.

  • AEB

    “…and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil….”

    I’ve never quite understood this. Why would one ask a deity who might lead one into temptation to also deliver one from evil?

    I mean, how capricious can a deity get?

    But that aside, is the opposite of temptation “evil”? Shouldn’t it go, “…lead us not into temptation AND deliver us from evil….”?


    As a Christian, I could care less what a street fair was on.

  • ABC

    I have successfully kept my kids away from these street fairs without issue. Heck, I often dont know they’re even going on. And I would be very happy if you want to hold any of these kinds of things on Holy Thursday or Good Friday.

  • PJL

    Sunset isn’t until 6:45….

  • http://r anon two

    I am so glad to see the spirit. of the heights is one of mutual respect and understanding You montague st. merchants and fellow antisemites should be proud.

  • Heights

    Antisemites? Let’s not go there. We all have holidays. I just don’t think the world should stop because it’s someone’s holiday. I respect all religions and you should respect my right to attend or not attend any function I wish whenver I wish. If you want to have a fair or whatever on Easter go right ahead. I would never think of telling you to change the date because it’s a holy day for me.

  • Cranky

    Sunset isn’t till 6:45 and this is the second or third week in a row that the ‘Summer Space’ is going on. You’re being a little dramatic with the “anti-semitism” claims here. Jeez.

  • RatNYC

    it is as mysterious to me how Jesus, the eggs and the bunny are related as how any of the comments here or a stupid street fair can be construed as antisemite.

  • anon too

    Tell me what is the reason for holding the fair on the Rosh Hashana Holiday ?? This is not antisemitic- it is an insensitive orersight. Your nasty…reactions and lack of understanding reveal that you are in your heart of heart antisemities. Judy -oh I mean Heights your days of telling people where to go or not go are over.

  • anon too

    The merchants and the Bha have more time to set this right.
    It is my true hope they do the right think…..Montague St. is on life support anyway…your responses are just helping it along.
    And to all a good night

  • anon too

    Why was this streetfair planned for one of three Jewish High
    Holy Days.. After all there are only 3

  • anon

    Rat that is exaclty my point-you and Chelsea are on another planet

  • jiker

    i make sure i am not in the hood when these fairs are going on.

  • bornhere

    Could someone who is offended by the planned events define if the issue is one of feeling excluded from the event (because of pre-Yom Kippur have-to’s) or that a supposedly fun-filled public event is being held so close to the start of a somber holy day.

  • agnostic

    AEB: Wikipedia has a nice (short) deconstruction of the Lords Prayer that you might find interesting.

  • nabeguy

    Whoa, this is not the same post that appeared yesterday, the one that explained that the Summer Events scheduled in July were re-scheduled to September due to “inclement weather”. Sorry JL, but you lost me on that decision.

  • hezekiah_pierrepont

    I would like to go on record as disdaining all of your primitive religions equally. If humanity could give up its yearning for a Big-Daddy-in-the-Sky we’d all be a lot better off, and our street fairs could proceed without these ugly blog spats.

  • bornhere

    Wow, Hezekiah (by the way, that’s one snazzy name) — then there would be no more San Gennaro, at the very (very) least. Not okay at all.

  • nabeguy

    hezekhia, I’d stoop to kiss your ring, but I’m just not that primitive. For some of us, it’s not about the big-daddy-in-the sky but the one on our streets.
