|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 April 23):
We are back at the Bijou metro, 43 West Broadway in downtown Eugene. We usually sell out at this venue so we recommend buying tickets early. Here is the link to buy advanced tickets.
Please note the time change: the movie will be playing at 3pm!
With Israel’s Independence Day Coming…
along with Israel’s Memorial Day and Holocaust Remembrance Day, we thought we would turn our movie eyes to a bit of Israel’s history. The movie is: The Prime Ministers: The Pioneers. Thank you Baruch HaLevi for finding this gem for us. It is an insider’s perspective of the Prime Ministers of Israel from the Six Day War & Yom Kippor War periods: Levi Eshkol and Golda Meir. However, the movie does not stop there. It also includes a look at Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Rabin, and how and why they turned to politics.
Tickets are $5. If you wish to support J.E.W. we will have a donation jar in the lobby.
We will have a discussion about the movie afterwards. We hope you can stay for the discussion.
We are looking for a volunteer to help us with the film festival. Please call Shmuel at 541-514-2571 if you are interested.
