Jewish community Panim Hadashot – New Faces moves into Greenwood

September 12th, 2017 by Doree

The Jewish organization Panim Hadashot-New Faces has moved into Greenwood. The group’s offices are at Works Progres Coworking, at 115 N. 85th St., Suite 202, which is also where it holds its monthly Shabbat services during the fall, winter and spring. In the summer months, it holds Shabbat services in Carkeek Park.

Panim Hadashot-פנים חדשות (Pah-neem Chah-dah-shote) means “new faces” in Hebrew. It is an ancient Jewish term associated with hospitality and the Sabbath. Panim Hadashot-New Faces fosters Sabbath joy (Oneg Shabbat) by encouraging home hospitality, reviving the tradition of table singing through our music, exploring timely Jewish teachings, and bringing ‘new faces’, people from diverse backgrounds, together in celebration.

Forum on Move Seattle transportation levy Monday in Greenwood

September 29th, 2015 by Doree

The Greenwood Community Council Transportation Committee is hosting a forum from 7-8:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 5, at Works Progress, 115 N. 85th St., Suite 202, about the Move Seattle levy proposal on the November ballot.

In 2006, Seattle voters approved a nine-year $365 million transportation levy, known as Bridging the Gap, which will expire at the end of 2015. For the last eight years, this levy provided the Seattle Department of Transportation with nearly 25% of it’s funding with funds being used to address maintenance backlogs, improve transit service, rehabilitate bridges, and implement pedestrian safety projects throughout the city.

This November Seattle voters will vote on a new transportation levy that will replace Bridging the Gap. The replacement levy proposal, called “Move Seattle,” will fund an array of transportation projects throughout the city with the goals of reducing congestion, increasing safety, and improving aging infrastructure.

The $900 million Move Seattle levy would be paid for through a property tax that would cost the median Seattle household (approx. $450,000) about $275 per year for nine years.

We will be hosting a panel of representatives from the Let’s Move Seattle campaign who will make a brief presentation of what is in the levy proposal and what projects are specifically planned for North Seattle. We will also reserve plenty of time for questions from the audience.
