Do You 10Q?

Books and Blintzes is thrilled to be a community partner with www.doyou10Q.com.

What is 10Q?

“10Q is a platform for people to rethink the significance of the time period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and its relevance to their lives today, by generating a space for annual reflection which is not place bound or connected to a religious movement.
10 Days. 10 Questions. Answer one question per day in your own secret online 10Q space. Make your answers serious. Silly. Salacious. However you like. It’s your 10Q. At the end of the ten days, you have a day or so post-Yom Kippur to reflect on your answers. You will then be invited to hit the magic button and send your answers to a locked online vault. Next year, on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, your answers will magically appear in your inbox, full of revelations. It’s time to 10Q, click here to sign up. http://www.doyou10q.com/”

Why 10Q With Books and Blintzes?

Books and Blintzes is committed to being a platform where everyone has a voice. Where we find inspiration in the art we share to reflect on what our Jewish texts and traditions mean to us. Join our 10Q journey here on our “Words of Wisdom” page and on our Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram feeds. We can’t wait to find out what will shape our connections this year!
