National parks are more than massive western landscapes. Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio is a calming escape from the nearby urban centers of Cleveland and Akron. When you walk through the woods past waterfalls and wildlife to find your perfect spot along a babbling stream, you’ll know why national parks are national treasures. Every park has a secret to share. It’s up to you to get out there discover them. Photo by Jerry Jelinek (www.sharetheexperience.org).

How about this!

To celebrate 50 years of environmental resurgence, the Cuyahoga River has been named “River of the Year” by American Rivers. More than 300 Northeast Ohio organizations are planning events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the June 22 fire and the transformation of the river from an open sewer to an active fishery and watersports playground.

Exciting!

Oh So Sweet

Hi,
This is a very personal post for me.
Last Saturday, March 16th, my Brother-in-law Steve Pierce passed away unexpectedly during a run.
A fund has been started to raise money for his kids and to set-up a photography scholarship at Stow-Munroe Falls High School where he was a much loved photo teacher.
He always supported me and now I want to help him.
So...
This Friday and Saturday, all proceeds on those days will be put into the fund.
Come in for a coffee or a cookie to help out.
Thank you,
Judy

Temple Israel Akron

This was beautifully stated.

Sharing the words of my colleague Rabbi Paul Kipnes this morning:
To our Muslim siblings everywhere
From a Jewish brother...
(By Rabbi Paul Kipnes)

Today we mourn with you those murdered in the shootings in the New Zealand mosques, where God’s children were gathering for the most basic of human acts - to pause to worship the Creator. Our hearts are breaking for those 49 innocents who were killed and the many more wounded. Our heart ache for their families and our Muslim siblings in New Zealand and all over the world.

This massacre was, in fact, an attack on all of humanity. In Torah we learn that all humans are created B’tzelem Elohim (in the image of God). We are all ... one.

We share values. In our Talmud, we learn, “whoever destroys a single life is considered by scripture to have destroyed the whole world, and whoever saves a single life is considered to have saved the whole world (B Talmud Sanhedrin 37a). In the Qur’an we learn, God says: “We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul ...it is as if he has slain all of mankind. And whoever saves one soul - it is as if he has saved all of mankind” (Qur’an 5:32). With the loss of these people, the world we envision - of harmony and unity - has been once again destroyed.

Our hearts and prayers are with the victims, their families and our Muslim siblings everywhere who had to witness this ungodly crime carried out against their community. In spite of this, my dear Muslim siblings, know that you are not alone. Jews, Christians and many others stand firm against hate and we will always do our part to ensure such atrocities are not carried out once again.

As you stood with us after the shooting in the synagogue in Pittsburgh, we stand with you again today. May God bless your community and join our hearts together in peace.

Thank you Sweet Mary’s for spreading the love...and the deliciousness!! Let’s all support Downtown Businesses!

Thank you Sweet Mary’s for spreading the love...and the deliciousness!! Let’s all support Downtown Businesses!

Holy crap, guys. 🚨 Hold the phone and shut the front door. Full stop. 🛑 There's no picture I could've taken that would do justice to the flavors I'm currently experiencing. 🤤

I'm ashamed to admit I hadn't been there until today, but I'm pretty sure this is going to be a thing. So go, go NOW to Pots and Pans Jamaican Cuisine (@potsnpansja) in downtown Akron and get you some amazing, authentic Jamaican food. And when Lamesha tells you that you should get rice and peas, you need to trust her. She's not lying. 😉

Be sure you support all of our wonderful downtown Akron businesses, especially during this harrowing construction! We need your business to stay in business, so that's your business, too. 😆

See you in the morning! 😘

We are happy to share our newest music video "Living Room" from our upcoming Basketball EP via the awesome folks at ThrdCoast! They had some fun words to say about the song and vid. Calling it "an alliterative assassination of the hyper-capitalistic conditions our current culture provide" and much more in the article. We hope y'all enjoy this new tune. Can't wait to share more!

Love,

Please spread the word on this wonderful act of community love from The Countryside Conservancy...many thanks to them!

Countryside cares deeply about how the current partial, government shutdown is impacting our neighbors and friends. This weekend federal workers affected by the government shutdown can inquire at the information booth at Countryside Public Market or Countryside Old Trail School Winter Farmers' Market and receive vouchers to be used for up to $15 in groceries at the markets. Thank you for your service, and thank you to the community for donating to make this possible! To donate, visit the information booth at either market.
