Welcome

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. Here are some pictures of one of our recent events: Tu b'Av: BBQ & Music Jam        July 28,2013
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 (update May 13):

Join us on Sunday, May 17 at 3pm for our final movie at the Bijou.  The movie is called:  The Return.  Please note, we have often sold out our movies.  If you wish to buy advanced tickets you can do so by clicking here.

Eugene Jewish Film Festival movie:  The ReturnHOW DO YOU BUILD YOUR IDENTITY WHEN YOUR PAST HAS BEEN STRIPPED AWAY?

 

With no access to their heritage, four women are forging a new sense of self. In the country that was once the epicenter of the Jewish world, and now regarded as “the Jewish graveyard,” they are figuring out how to be Jewish in today’s Poland.

 

As always a discussion follows the movie.  We hope to see you there.

We are looking for a volunteer to help us with the film festival.  Please call Shmuel at 541-514-2571 if you are interested.

Look for us next month at the David Minor Theater.
