What Animal Is Best Suited For A Day Of Rest?


What animal is best suited for a day of rest?

He doesn’t like to rush.
He doesn’t multitask.
That’s why he feels at home on Shabbat.

Who is it? Coco the sloth. His preference for moving very slowly makes Shabbat (the Jewish day of rest) his favorite day of the week, and by extension, Shababa™ at 92Y his happiest! Even if you don’t celebrate Shabbat, Coco is all about taking a break, slowing down and enjoying the people around you.

If you’ve never met Coco, here’s an introduction:

See more of Coco – and Karina Zilberman – at Shababa™ the Concert on February 5 (and still get home in time for the Super Bowl). And you can pick up a copy of the brand new Shababaland CD (which includes the full version of “Coco’s Song”). Coco is a regular at Shababa™, a warm, inclusive and growing Jewish community that gives families lots of different ways to explore and celebrate Jewish life and culture. Just think how Kristin Bell would react if she ever attended!

This Sunday, bring your family to meet ours, at Shababa™ the Concert. See you there!

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Anthony Prozzi


Anthony Prozzi is Senior Interior Designer at Ford Motor Co. He’ll be participating in the Anatomy of Fashion panel at the inaugural State of Style Summit on February 7 at 92YTribeca. Kicking off New York Fashion Week, State of Style Summit – presented by 92Y, StyleCaster Media Group and by Ford - is packed with amazing panels; check out the full schedule here.

Prozzi was gracious enough to participate in the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A. What kind of radio does he listen to? “101.9, Detroit’s NPR all day, and late weekend nights I come across something broadcasting from the University of Windsor, Canada.” Read more below.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
The New York Times app from my iphone; followed by a multitude of texts and emails from some very well read friends.

What are your favorite websites?
Obviously and for news and trends; and to shop; and for inspiration and countless others. It’s extraordinary to think what the internet has done with access and availability of information.

imageHow much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I’m not one to “ tweet .” I’m not the best facebooker either. I prefer my privacy, but when I took first place in a skating championship it felt good to post and hear congrats from my friends around the globe.
