|Jewish Events Willamette-valley is your source to Jewish related events in and around Eugene, Oregon, and the Willamette valley. Here is your chance to discover a bit of your heritage that you didn’t know existed, in a fun and relaxed and joyous way. Stand up and be proud of being Jewish. And also discover a little bit of what that means, so when somebody asks, you can say more than, “I light candles and we read from a scroll on Saturday mornings something I don’t understand. But the chanting is fun.”We are inclusive and so when we serve food at events, it will be kosher.||
|Some events are free. Some we will charge, but only so the costs of the event will not be coming out of our pockets. We, at Jewish Events Willamette-valley, are not rich. If you would like to contribute, we would be very grateful.|
The Eugene Jewish Film Festival (updated July 8):
THIS MONTH’S MOVIE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
The Eugene Jewish Film Festival is 1 year old this month!!!
We are back at the Bijou metro, 43 West Broadway in downtown Eugene. We often sell out at this venue so we recommend buying tickets early. We will post a link for advanced tickets when we have it. Tickets are $5 and a donation jar will be available for those who wish to support JEW (that’s us!).
We celebrate our birthday with the movie Brothers. It is an Israeli movie and here is the description: Dan chooses to work on the land, living in a kibbutz in the South of Israel. Aaron, his brother is a doctor of law and philosophy and a distinguished scholar of the Torah. He comes to Jerusalem from the United States to defend the rights of Torah students. The conflict which arises between the two brothers reflects that of a society torn between its religious and political principles. With restrictions on the increase and injustices multiplying, Israel today is on the brink of civil war. This film opens a subtle yet essential debate on the question of separation of the state and religion in Israel.
And for those who wish, we will be meeting afterwards for a discussion after the movie.
We are looking for a volunteer to help us with the film festival. Please call Shmuel at 541-514-2571 if you are interested.
