MAJCo — CHAG HANUKAH SAMEACH

Six13 – A Star Wars Chanukah
“DO, OR DO NOT — THERE IS NO TRY.”

Little known fact: though Baby Yoda’s cousin delivered this sage advice to Luke Skywalker, he took his inspiration from the Maccabees. Like the Jedi years later, against all odds (never tell us the odds!) they fought off a great empire who sought their destruction.

Today, we celebrate the miracles of that time with presents, dreidels and latkes — and our tribute to the music of one of the greatest film franchises of all time. CHAG SAMEACH… may the force be with you!

HANUKKAH MESSAGE, FROM RABBI RUZ GULKO

Chag Urim Sameach – A joyous holiday of lights to all of my dear friends in Great Falls!!

During this darkest time of year and of our political insanity, let us pray for a world united by wisdom and love, with the critical recognition that there is so much more that unites us than divides us!!
💜
Love, Rabbi Ruz

Against a backdrop of growing religious polarization and disengagement, these now 33 year old subjects, including a Catholic, Pagan, Jew, Muslim, Lakota and Buddhist, offer their deeply personal faith journeys, life challenges, and evolving ideas about higher powers.

NEW FILM ON JEWISH SCHOLARS WHO FOUGHT NAZI PROPAGANDA FROM INSIDE THE WARSAW GHETTO

We’re writing to share a new award-winning documentary that we hope you’ll screen with Great Falls Hebrew Association Aitz Chaim.

WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY tells the incredible story of a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders in the Warsaw Ghetto who set out to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda with pen and paper. The film mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive – the caches of writing and artifacts buried by these men and women – with new interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations to transport viewers inside the Ghetto and into the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. Read the full synopsis here and request a preview link on our website.

“Using newsreels, voice-overs and re-enactments, Roberta Grossman, the documentary’s director, paints a comprehensive portrait of the times and of the risks taken by Ringelblum and his group.”
