|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 ( update Jan 13):
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!).
Our next movie is Sunday Jan 18, 3pm.
In the north of Berlin, covered with a primeval forest of trees, rhododendron and ivy is the Weissensee Jewish Cemetery. Created in 1880, neither the cemetery nor its archives have ever been destroyed it is a paradise for gatherers of stories.
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.
