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 (September 10):

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!).
The High Holy days start this month, and they are a time on choosing.  In order to choose, you need to know what your choices are.  With this in mind, we bring you our next movie:  Brothers.  It is an Israeli movie about… Dan who 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.

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.
