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 (Nov 12):

Come and help us celebrate the Eugene Jewish Film Festival’s 2nd year.

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.  Here is the link.  Tickets are $5 and a donation jar will be available for those who wish to support JEW (that’s us!).
after the silence

This month we are proud to show After the Silence.  Here is a brief synopsis:  March 31, 2002: Shadi Tobassi, a suicide bomber from Jenin, blew himself up in the Arab-owned Matza Restaurant in Haifa, killing 15 people. Among the victims was Dov Chernobroda, an Israeli architect who had dedicated his life to the peace process. Eight years later, his widow Yael decides to contact the Tobassi family, in an attempt to break down the wall of silence that existed on both sides.

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.
