Today’s eJewish Philanthropy features an article by Susan Weidman Schneider, one of Lilith Magazines founders, on the concept on Salons.
She writes…Salons, popular among intellectually curious and avant-garde Jewish women from the eighteenth century onward, are re-appearing in the 21st century as an opportunity for thoughtful women to get together to mull over some of the most exciting thinking of the day. Lilith Magazine has created contemporary salons where ideas hatch and are nurtured, places where small groups of women meet for informal discussions. Salon conversations can pull in women of all ages to talk and act on many progressive fronts – reproductive freedoms, diversity in Jewish families, rights for Israeli women, and much more.
Are salons right for your organization? Read the full article here.
“One hundred years ago, more than a million people marched in streets across Europe on the first International Women’s Day, calling for an end to discrimination and for women to have the same rights as men to work, vote and shape the future of their countries.”
It’s always sort of fun to watch the super-bowl ads with an eye for where the ad dollars are going and what sort of messages are being shown.
The green car movement is one that has begun to take hold here in Israel and even more so in the US. Project Better Place is one example of a company that has plans to green up the market.
I like this Chevy commercial not only because I recently bought a Chevy Cruze myself, but because of the humor. Some say the humor is a bit controversial though I don’t really see that.
The fact that GM is putting their ad dollars towards marketing the new 1.4 eco model of the Cruze that gets 42 mpg is a really good step in the right direction for all the right reasons too if you ask me.
Anyway, I’d love your 2 cents of this ad. Give a look and enjoy.

“Since launching in October, (Paul) Pruett has been able to get Bubble Chocolate onto the shelves of more than 1,000 retailers — mostly independent stores, but also a few large chains like Whole Foods. So far, he hasn’t done much marketing except for some in-store demonstrations. How can Pruett persuade Americans to pay a premium for chocolate pumped full of air? We asked four entrepreneurs to weigh in.”
Lautman Maska Neill & Company is proud that three campaigns – which successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for three wonderful organizations – were awarded Silver Maxis by the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW).
The Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) multi-channel Department of Defense Campaign, the Masonic Children and Family Services of Texas acquisition package and the Center for Jewish History Calendar of Events renewal were all recognized by the DMAW for their stellar results and creative excellence.
The Maxi ceremony, held Monday, July 26th at the beginning of the Bridge Conference, was a great reminder that solid fundraising strategy (in a creative package) yields great results!
Congratulations to all of our associates at Lautman, Maska Neill & Company.

This more of an ad campaign than a direct marketing campaign, but it’s original and it created a lot of social media interactions so I thought I would re-post this for our readers.
