December 16 – December 22: Jersey Strong!

We would like to extend our love and condolences to the families of the innocent victims affected by last week’s horrific incident. We remain strong and full of love for our Jersey City community.

The HDSID’s social media and blogs always try to remain positive, fun, informative and bring joy. While we will continue to do so, the brave officers and first responders will always have our utmost respect. We are Jersey Strong!  

 

Now let’s try to enjoy the week ahead!

Coming up:

New Year’s Eve at Jivamukti

We are already thinking about New Year’s Eve! We know- t’s a little crazy but there is a great event courtesy of Jivamukti Yoga Studio that you need to know about before you make any plans. We know most places will have parties and loud music and that’s perfectly fine. But if you want to ring in the new year differently, Jivamukti is here with their first New Year’s Eve event!

The night will have a yoga class (of course) with Yogeswari and Austin, buffet vegan dinner, a kirtan which is a music concert, silent meditation, a home puja which will “purify the space before ringing in the new year and the new decade 2020!” Enter 2020 with a clear mind space and filled with positivity and love.

The event is separated into two parts: the first part is the yoga class and dinner which is $85 for both and attendees must pre-register for that. The second part of the New Year’s Eve event is the music concert, the meditation, and the puja. Those events do not require registration and everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to donate to the second part, the organizers suggest $20.
