SYNAGOGUE SCREENINGS FOR MLK DAY 2018

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, Menemsha Films is the largest distributor of Jewish themed films in North America. Many of you recently licensed “The Women’s Balcony” from us for successful programming at your congregation. We have a vast catalogue of films for additional programming.

We specifically want to point out the film “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not be Silent” for the upcoming MLK Day January 15, 2018. “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent” is a documentary about the leading rabbi in 1930’s Berlin who emigrated to America. Rabbi Prinz became one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest confidantes and spoke just prior to Martin Luther King at the March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 . Rabbi Prinz’ address has been widely acclaimed throughout the history of the civil rights movement and is remembered for its contention that in the face of discrimination, “the most urgent, the most disgraceful, the most shameful and the most tragic problem is silence.”

In this time of racial tension, Rabbi Prinz is a leading example of empathy and taking action in the face of prejudice, standing up for those oppressed and living a righteous life.

Here is the link for the trailer for “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent”.

For more information on Rabbi Prinz and to read the transcript of his speech, please see the website at http://www.joachimprinz.com/index.htm.

Please let me know if you would like a link to preview the film.

Best,
Heidi

DIASPORA ISRAEL DAY: CELEBRATING JEWISH PEOPLEHOOD 7 CHESHVAN

Diaspora Israel Day
Celebrating Jewish Peoplehood
7th of Cheshvan

The Hebrew calendar is filled, as we all know, with many holidays and festivals. Yet, there is one very meaningful Jewish value which is not manifested, or celebrated in any holiday – the value of Klal Israel.

We believe that these special bonds between Jewish communities across the globe, which have been persevered against all odds and despite all differences, is a true cause for celebration.

On this coming 7th of Cheshvan – October 27th 2017 – we invite you to celebrate with us Diaspora Israel Day.

AN EVENING TO REMEMBER

image001Amber Ikeman, cantorial singer and songwriter, will be coming to Helena the weekend of November 10th and 11th. On the 10th, she will be performing some of her original work at Free Ceramic.

In addition, Amber is offering a free concert, previously performed and well-received in Bozeman, for the Helena Jewish community and friends on Saturday, November 11th at 7pm at Touchmark on Saddle Dr., in The Forum. This performance should last approximately one hour. Please tell your friends. Desserts for a social gathering following the performance are most welcome.

“OY, MAMA!”: Classic Yiddish folk songs, show tunes, original pieces, and heartfelt stories – all an homage to the Jewish Mother’s quirks and virtues. Presented by Cantorial Soloist/Singer Songwriter Amber Ikeman. Free (donations appreciated).

“Anchored by hilarious stories about her own mother, grandmothers, and generations beyond, Amber’s music deeply touched everyone in the crowd. Both the Yiddish and English songs captured the soul of Jewish motherhood and enriched our memories of our mothers and grandmothers, laughing at their eccentricities and crying for those we have lost. Amber’s voice and guitar are technically superb, but it’s the way she uses her talents to stir our deepest feelings that will leave you wanting more.” – Rabbi Ed Stafman

THE INTERNATIONAL SHABBOS/SHABBAT PROJECT, OCTOBER27-28

The Shabbat Project | 27-28 October

This week, in addition to exciting events in Rome, Tel Aviv and Warsaw, there are tributes from a nation’s president, a Chassidic rebbe and a New York
a capella band!

How are your final preparations going?

#KeepingItTogether #TheFinalCountdown

Reuvy Baby!
Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin has publicly endorsed The Shabbat Project.
Read his letter here!

It’s Official
In Zichron Yaakov, organisers are partnering with the mayor’s office to run a host of events – including a pre-event wine evening, citywide Challah Bake, Kabbalat Shabbat under the stars, Shabbat activities and workshops in schools, and a Friday night dinner for the city’s teenagers.

Click here for more.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen
Rome has clicked into gear with the “Invite your neighbours” campaign that will see friends and ‘strangers’ gathering together in homes across the city for Shabbat meals. Rome will be joined by Venice, Naples, Milan, Cosenza, Cuneo and Torino, which are all running headline events.

Check it out.

Poles A Part
Warsaw is paying tribute to South Africa – where The Shabbat Project was introduced in 2013 – with a communal Friday night meal comprising South African delicacies. The South African Ambassador to Poland is also expected to attend.

Rocking in Rio
In Rio de Janeiro, Jews in the neighbourhoods of Copacabana, Ipanema, Botafogo and Leblon are participating in a veritable carnival of Shabbat Project events.

Check it out here.

Shabbat Around the World
Inspire Tel Aviv (ITV) is hosting an extraordinary dinner on a rooftop overlooking the city, where it will be serving foods and celebrating cultures from around the world. ITV is also having a cholent-and-beer Shabbat lunch, a walking tour of “Tel Aviv’s hidden history”, a third meal, and a musical Havdallah!

Register here.


I’m a Jewish Mother, Do Exactly As I Say!
Tovah Feldshuh – actress, singer, playwright, and Jewish mother – says: “Come to the worldwide Challah Bake!” And you dare not disobey.

Havdallah Spice Shouldn’t Be a Problem
In Marrakesh, Morocco, a tour group of 35 people from around the world have opted to keep a full Shabbat together! That’s not all for Morocco. Shabbat Project activities are also happening in the cities of Rabat and Casablanca, where Shabbat meals are being planned.

Contact David

A Jew You Should Know
Ari Koretzky has interviewed US senators, Nobel Prize winners, 9/11 survivors, hedge fund masterminds and global human rights ambassadors. In his latest “Jews you should know” podcast, he gets up close and personal with the “Good Shabbos Rabbi” himself – South Africa’s Chief Rabbi Dr Warren Goldstein, who is the founder and director of The Shabbat Project.

Check it out here.

Novaminsker Rebbe Gets On Board
People often ask, what about communities that keep Shabbat every week? If they experience this gift every week – what can they do to tap into the magic of The Shabbat Project? The Novominsker Rebbe and the Chief Rabbi of South Africa have answered this conundrum…
The Shabbat Project is an opportunity for everyone to renew their appreciation of Shabbat, even those who have kept Shabbat since birth. So families around the world are uniting to study chapter 30 of the Rambam Hilchos Shabbos on the Shabbat of The Shabbat Project, as a way to renew their appreciation of this beautiful gift!

Download the study material here.

Justin Timberlake Says: “Keep Shabbat!”
Okay, we admit – that headline was just clickbait. But to help you get over your disappointment, here’s NYC’s crack a cappella outfit, Six13, giving JT’s “Can’t stop the feeling!” a distinctly Sabbatical spin.

Here’s to keeping it together in 2017.

There is still time to put your city/town/county on the list!
