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.

Passover Information:

Public seders are listed on the calender.  As of now (3/26) we are aware of seders at Hillel, Ohr haGan, and TBI.

Do you have an extra place at your Seder table for someone in our community so that they do not have to spend Pesach alone? Please contact Oriana Hurwit, Jewish Federation Social Service Coordinator or phone the Federation office at (541) 484-2541.

 

The Eugene Jewish Film Festival (update March 11):

The Bijou has been very generous in hosting us for free for almost 2 years.  Unfortunately, they are not able to continue to do so.  As a result, we are looking for a new venue or for funds to continue the festival.  Our last showing at the Bijou will be in May.

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 March 15, 3pm.

Movie for Eugene Jewish Film Festival

Freedom is coming.  In a few weeks we celebrate Passover which is about our freedom to come home to the promised land.

This month we are showing two movies that are also about coming home to the promised land and the challenges involved.  The first movie is 400 Miles to Freedom, and the second is The Last Jewish Town.

 

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.
