Resource can help with simchas and more

Nora Contini, the Jewish Bulletin's associate publisher, said Resource has become "very popular for planning weddings, as well as other simchas."

See Page 126 to rent a chuppah and to find Hebrew-inscribed wedding bands. To have your ketubah designed, see Page 124.

Page 12 provides the number of the Board of Rabbis of Northern California. Spiritual leaders also are listed under Bay Area synagogues listings beginning on Page 19.

Food and Nosherei start on page 132. To honeymoon in Israel, turn to Page 103. And if you're still single, look up social groups on Page 86.

There are hundreds of other listings in categories from social services to Jewish media.

The purpose of the publication is "not to tell everyone everything about the Jewish community," Contini said. "It should instead be a stepping stone, allowing them to easily find who it is to call."

Resource is published by the Jewish Bulletin and edited under the auspices of Jewish Community Information & Referral, a service of the S.F.-based Jewish Community Federation. Resource several times has won the American Jewish Press Association's first-place Simon Rockower Award for Excellence in Special Projects: Community Guide Books with Circulation over 15,000.

Around the end of October, the new edition of Resource will be available online at All Bulletin subscribers will get a copy of Resource by mail. It also will be sold in Bay Area Judaica shops at a price of $6, or by mail for $6 plus $3 postage from the Jewish Bulletin, 225 Bush St., Suite1480, S.F., CA 94104.
