You have been crowned The Biggest Nightlights fans

From: Joanie Leeds <joanieleeds>
Date: Mon, Aug 11, 2014 at 8:59 PM
Subject: You have been crowned The Biggest Nightlights fans

Dear special select friends and family,

When I think of our BIGGEST FANS and supporters, the ones that send me videos of their kids rocking out to our tunes, wearing our shirts, sending me nice emails and tagging on FB or big KPL fans…there is a handful of you who come to mind… So I’m asking you 20 fine folks for a bit of help which will take 2 seconds of your time.

I just found out that Sirius/XM Channel 78 Kids Place Live debuted 3 of our songs yesterday! I have been waiting with baited breath wondering if they ever would play any tunes from ‘Good Egg’ and finally, they did! I believe they are in the middle of a "trial" period where they test out certain songs and then if they go over well, they will play them a lot more. They don’t play my stuff often so this is a big deal for me!
Getting played on this station is a huge goal for a few reasons:
1) National exposure of course…and 2) This is one of the only stations in the country where you actually get paid fairly for radio play.

Request ‘Good Egg’ tunes to Sirius/XM Kids Place Live!!!

Having your songs in constant rotation and becoming #1 is achieved only by having fans constantly call in, emailing or putting messages on KPL’s Facebook page & requesting your favorite tunes. They just started spinning the following tunes: Kids Place, The World is Your Oyster or My Dadso please request request request! Remember, this is a kids station so if you don’t have kids, it needs to be dedicated to a kid listener or else it’s just weird, especially if you are my family. Pick a kid, any kid! :) It’s the best when it actually IS the child’s favorite tune.

Over the next week, please request as often as you’d like, the more often, the better, in one of these 3 ways:

1-- Call in 1-866-328-2345 & ask to hear Joanie’s Kids Place, The World is Your Oyster or My Dad (or your child’s favorite Joanie tune not mentioned). You might get on the air! Depending on the time of day, you could reach hosts, Mindy Thomas, Jack Forman or Kenny Curtis. They are hilarious and awesome.

2– Email kidsplacelive and dedicate one of these songs to a kid of your choosing. Just say how much you love Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights and how you hope to hear ________________. Make sure to say hi to the hosts, Mindy Thomas, Jack Forman and Kenny Curtis.

3-- Send a Kids Place Live a Facebook message to request your favorite!

Super easy… super THANKS!
If you know any super duper Nightight fans I left off this list, please feel free to spread the word to your friends.

If you are a Mom – or a Dad please read this.

If you are a Mom or Dad, you probably came to my blog to find a nanny or to read something hyper-local going on on the Upper West Side. If you are a Mom or Dad, you love your child and would always want to protect them (you feed them, hug them, teach them how to properly cross our busy streets.)

If you are a Mom or Dad, please read this – from an Israeli Mom – and imagine how you would feel.  On the Upper West Side, we have a diversity of opinions, certainly.  I want to make it clear that I stand with Israel and hope that each person who reads my blog will take the responsibility to be educated on the facts and engage in respectful and meaningful conversations with those who have not yet thought about what it is to be an Israeli Mom. This was so touching to me. Thank you, Jack for sending this to me.

To be an Israeli mom.

To be an Israeli mom is – before you’re even an actual mother, to wait for the ultrasound exam to learn that everything is ok, but when the doctor says “it’s a boy” – to immediately imagine your fetus a soldier in uniform, with road dust in his hair, his rifle hanging on his shoulder and his eyes full of innocence. And to start being afraid.

To be an Israeli mom is to teach your daughter not to show weakness in front of her third grade classmates, because she has to be strong, so she doesn’t fall apart in front of her tough commander at basic training as a rookie soldier.

To be an Israeli mom is to complain about your country quite a bit, but always tell your children it’s the best place in the world.

To be an Israeli mom is to be involved, to “consume” the news like a drug addict, to protest for or against, and always feel responsible for what’s going on here, because it’s yours. It’s your state, and it’s your children that will protect it. And to know that you don’t have the option to be indifferent, not in this country. And sometimes – to agonize that you didn’t protest more.

To be an Israeli mom is to know about the situation no less than the staff sergeant, the commanding officer, and even the Chief of Staff. And if you meet them, to also let them know what YOU think should be done.

To be an Israeli mom is to be scared when there is a sudden siren, but to remember it’s important that your children don’t stress out, and won’t be afraid, so you take a deep breath and tend to them first, like you couldn’t be more calm and you’re not scared one bit.

To be an Israeli mom who lives by the border, near Lebanon in the north or Gaza in the south, is to be a part of a chain of the wonderful brave Israeli women, for whom guarding their homes is also guarding their country. And to hope this time would be the last.

To be an Israeli mom is to see field-training-uniform hanging on the laundry rope, and know how difficult it is to iron them. And to also know that the mother or father who irons them might shed a small tear which will probably be absorbed into the cloth, without leaving a trace, but which will have come from deep within the heart.

To be an Israeli mom it to not be able to look at the photos of our killed soldiers, and try not to think how they look like your own son. And then look at the photos and think it anyway.

To be an Israeli mom is to see a bereaved mother and feel how you run out of air, fee the sharp pain in your chest. It’s to know that that bereaved mother is not someone else – she is a mom exactly like you. And that it could have been you. And through that to feel you are soul sisters, and hurt with her. To want to hold and hug her, but at the same time to know you will never be able to actually ease her pain, and that there are no words.

To be an Israeli mom is to want one day to be a grandmother too. To be an Israeli grandma is to not to believe that both your grandson and granddaughter are being drafted to the army. After all, you were the one who told grandfather, when he went to war, that by the time you had grandchildren this would end. And to wonder whether it will ever end.

To be an Israeli mom is to know that all you want to give your children is security, and to realize that this is the one thing you cannot actually promise them. And still know for a fact that Israel is the most secure place for your child. (I know this cannot really be explained to anyone who is not an Israeli).

To be an Israeli mom is to want peace, but not be willing to give up safety or security. It’s to go through the current month in Israel and to know that an Israeli mom deserves to grow her children quietly. It’s to also know that one day peace will come.

Because peace is the promise of the Israeli mother.
And she is not the one to give-up.

Update on Operation Protective Edge and Federation Response

No matter where you are politically about Israel. This update will surely make you cry.
Imagine if this was our life. Many of us have dear friends and family in Israel so this IS OUR LIFE!

Update on Operation Protective Edge and Federation Response

July 9, 2014

Dear Friends,

I have just arrived on the ground in Israel. The atmosphere here is what we have grown to expect. Israelis are resolute, focused and committed to both protecting those within the range of fire and keeping the activities of daily life going. But now that the vast majority of Israelis are within rocket range—just hours ago a rocket hit near Zichron Yaakov, 39 miles north of Tel Aviv, far from the cities of the South that have been plagued by attacks for more than a decade—the entire country is on edge.

Over the next several hours, we will be consulting with Federation leadership as to whether to activate a continental emergency mobilization including fundraising and solidarity missions. Stand by, we will report on that this afternoon. Already, our partner agencies are in high gear responding to the rapidly escalating situation.

In the meantime, here is a summary of events curated by our Israel team that reflects what is happening on the ground. We have included embedded links for additional information and videos.



  • Overnight, the IDF targeted approximately 160 terror sites throughout the Gaza Strip, including 118 rocket launching sites, 10 terror and smuggling tunnels, 6 Hamas official facilities, and 10 terror command positions.
  • In just under two days, since the start of Operation Protective Edge on July 7, the IDF has targeted approximately 440 targets.
  • One of the many challenges in facing Hamas terror is their use of human shields. Israel is calling Palestinian civilians in Gaza to warn them to evacuate minutes before they perform airstrikes. Five of the weapon manufacturing facilities the IAF has targeted overnight were concealed within mosques. See an extract of the delicate procedure the IAF takes in targeting terrorist sites.
  • The IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Major General Yoav Mordechai called on Hamas to immediately stop firing rockets into Israel.
  • “Calm will be answered with calm,” Mordechai said, stressing that escalation would only lead to more escalation and a harsh IDF response. He said Hamas had taken the decision to wreak havoc on the Gaza Strip during Ramadan as distraction from its own economic and social problems.



The Jewish Agency for Israel:

  • Currently has over 4500 young adults in Israel on short term immersion experiences, and an additional 3,000 on long term.
  • Security briefings have been provided for all tour operators and participants, and none are currently within 24 mi. of Gaza (an Onward group from Be’er Sheva was moved northward).
  • Programs operating between 24-49 miles north of Gaza must brief participants on how to act if sirens sound, and must remain within proximity of safe shelter.
  • Parents of all Onward participants (270 currently in Israel), have been contacted and other programs either have already sent or will be sending communications shortly.
  • Staff from a Jewish Agency subsidiary, Amigour, are performing damage assessment caused by rocket fire for the National Property Tax Authority.

American Jewish Joint Distribution Commitee (JDC):

  • Better Together, which serves children and youth has activated program managers in communities in the 24 mi.range. Activities for children have been suspended and large public gatherings are now prohibited in those areas. Currently the BT staff are putting together alternative activities that can be offered, with an emphasis on what can be done to keep the children occupied should there need to be extended stays in public shelters.

Israel Trauma Coalition:

  • There has been a 150% increase in those seeking help for shock and anxiety.
  • The overly demanding work of the previous weeks is already wearing down the professional staff who have been dealing with a spike in demands for help, related to the abduction of the three teenage boys. Over 100 therapeutic workshops have been set up to provide support to the population of the South, especially to parents and a show is being put on for children to educate them about safe responses to the situation.

Birthright Israel:

  • Currently there are 3,600 Birthright participants in Israel. BRI reviews all security measures and implements the most stringent security recommendations throughout the trip to ensure comprehensive safety. No effort or expense is spared as it relates to the security of participants.


  • We are collecting information on the impact of the situation on Federation partnership cities.
  • The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia,’s Israel representative, Talia Lidar, reports that Philadelphia’s partnership city, Netivot, which has been heavily impacted. Nothing communal is operating, the kids are at home with no activity, and the shopping centers are empty.
  • Arie Levy, Federation CJA Montreal, reports that “Beersheva is empty today with shops closed and all educational activities shut down. There are some children’s activities in shelters. There is no talk of evacuation; this is not a region that is easily evacuated. The authorities have implemented their emergency protocols for volunteers and staff. The Trauma Center is open in the Teacher’s Center.”


Jewish Federations Condemn Rocket Attacks from Gaza and Express Support for Israel

New York – As missiles continue to rain down on southern Israel from Gaza and with reports of sirens as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the worldwide Jewish community expresses its unending support for Israelis living again under terror in their own midst. The Jewish Federations of North America condemns Hamas and other terrorists in Gaza in the strongest possible terms for these attacks, making it clear that the North American Jewish community stands with Israel during this difficult time.

“Jewish Federations unequivocally support the Government of Israel in its response to the indiscriminate attacks launched against its people. As long as Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza continue to target innocent Israelis, Israel must be able to do whatever is necessary to protect her citizens. We commend President Barack Obama for his continuing support of Israel’s right to self-defense and we pray that calm will again be restored as quickly as possible.”


As a reminder, please encourage your leadership to participate in today’s special briefing sponsored by JFNA/JCPA with David Horovitz, editor of the Times of Israel, who will provide an up-to-the-minute update on the situation on the ground in Israel. Please use the following numbers: 1-800-399-0118. No conference ID is needed for guests calling in from the USA/Canada.
