The NYC branch welcomed Judy Millen this past weekend to lead a national workshop. Some 46 members packed themselves into the branch’s tight quarters. Recalling Master Moy’s early workshops at Darcy Street, the first instruction Judy offered was how to maintain the flow and rhythm of the set when you are pressed up against a wall. But the high price of Manhattan real estate didn’t deter anyone from attending. Members from as far away as Mexico, and New Hampshire, as well as New York State branches in Buffalo, Syracuse, and Ithaca were all represented. In keeping with the Society’s objective of cultural exchange, during the weekend participants made their way through banquets at three favorite Chinese restaurants, including Oriental Garden, Ginger House, and Chef Yu. Lunch on the last day highlighted the city’s cultural diversity in a different way—with traditional NY pizzas and a potluck that included latkes (potato pancakes for Hanukah), halvah, rugelach, homemade baklava, and an assortment of salads.
