From Sepharad to Ashkenaz

This month we will journey through lands of the Jewish Diaspora in the
form of a Double Feature at the Jewish Movies!

On Sunday May 21, at 4 PM we will present two documentaries:

From Toledo to Jerusalem

A 1988 Israeli-made film by Shmuel Imberman.This film is described as a
performance of “mysterious and passionate Ladino songs of Spanish
Jewry…by vocalist Yehoram Gaon against a backdrop of historically
significant scenery, along with insights into Sephardic culture.” Narrated in
Ladino with English subtitles (90 minutes).

A Fire in the Forest:  The Life and Legacy of the Ba’al Shem Tov

Next, we will journey to Eastern Europe with Conservative Rabbi Marc
Soloway, who embarks upon a quest to understand why the Ba’al Shem Tov
(known as the founder of Hasidism) is so revered by Jews of all stripes, from
the most Orthodox to the most liberal. In this 2014 documentary, Rabbi
Soloway interviews religious leaders and scholars from around the world,
traveling from his home in Boulder, CO, to New York, Boston, London, and
finally making a pilgrimage to the Ba’al Shem Tov’s homeland, and to his
grave in Mezhibozh in the Ukraine.“Through stories and historical information,
interviews with today’s most important teachers and on-location footage, A
Fire in the Forest shows us how the legacy of the Ba’al Shem Tov is still
very much alive in our day and relevant to our daily lives” (58 minutes).

There will be a light meal between the two movies --
the charge is just $10.00.  Don't forget your wallets!

Did you miss the Yom HaShoah service on  April 23rd?

This year our special service commemorating the Holocaust featured several local
Christian clergy, all joining together as a way of expressing their solidarity with us as
together we stand against all forms of bias and hate-crimes across the world.
