The third incarnation of TribeFest, the youth-oriented celebration of Jewish culture and communal affiliation, will be held next March in New Orleans, the Jewish Federations of North America announced Wednesday.
Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) is planning the third installment of its TribeFest young leadership conference for 2014, giving the Las Vegas confab a year off after successful events this year and last year.
The umbrella group for American Jewish philathropy is instead planning a smaller, low-key young leadeship conference this March in Dallas, to include several hundred TribeFest alumni.
I’m not a big celebrity watcher, but I wanted to let you all know that I did, in fact, hear that American-Israeli Jewish actress Natalie Portman (nee Hershlag) is engaged. And that her intended, French dancer Benjamin Millepied, is, according to bloggers far more in the know than I, probably not a Member of the Tribe.
So there you have it, another Jewish celeb (and a day school grad to boot) coming over to the dark side.
