MONTANA HADASSAH: SAD NEWS

Dear All,

It is with great sadness we share the news of the passing of Claude Oulman, beloved husband of our member Callie Oulman, and beloved father of our member Holly Oulman, all of Butte. May Claude’s memory be a blessing and may all the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion at this difficult time.

At this time, my understanding is that when Claude was life-flighted to Portland, where some of the family already lives, Callie also went, and that when it is safe to do so, after the pandemic, the family will have a gathering to honor Claude. The address to send cards is still the address we have in Butte:

Oulman’s
649 S. Montana St.
Butte, MT 59701

Thank you for keeping the Oulmans in your hearts.

INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED SCRIBE AND JEWISH SCHOLAR IS COMING TO GREAT FALLS

Internationally respected scholar and Torah scribe Rabbi Moshe Druin is coming to Great Falls to give an educational presentation on the Mysteries of Hebrew Letters
Tuesday, July 10, 2018, 5:30 to 7:00 P.M. B101
Great Falls College MSU, 2100 16th Avenue South

Our small Jewish community is bringing a Torah Scribe, Rabbi Moshe Druin, to great Falls to perform repairs on our Torah. Our Torah is over 100 years old and is still used at all of our services. The scroll needs some repairs so that it can continue to be used for at least another generation. He will be here July 10-11.

While he is here, Rabbi Druin will give an educational presentation on Mysteries of the Hebrew Letters at Great falls College MSU from 5:30 to 7:00 P.M. Donations are welcome.

Rabbi Moshe Druin is a renowned public speaker, sought after lecturer and a storytelling educator. His heartfelt, yet dynamic presentations have endeared him to Jews of all affiliations, ages and backgrounds. Rabbi Druin’s exciting and electrifying personality brings the relevance of Torah to life in a most meaningful and inspirational way.

Born in New York, his family made Aliyah when he was six. He has been through the three main streams of Judaism and has studied in Yeshivot of diverse affiliations in Israel. He was ordained as a Rabbi and Scribe in New York and together with his wife, Ahuva, they moved to Johannesburg, South Africa where he served as a Youth Director, Vice-Principal of the Jewish High School and later as pulpit Rabbi. He continued with his higher education in Jewish studies curriculum development at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Upon returning to the United States in 1998, his scribal expertise and public appearances moved to the forefront. Rabbi Druin has benefited congregations across the country and around the world in developing tailor-made educational, fundraising and community building Torah Projects. Sharing the warmth and inner wonder of Torah with a personalized and engaging approach, he is able to connect with all audiences. Today his company, Sofer On Site International, is distinguished as one of the world’s premier Torah Project developers, working with communities from Omaha to India on all facets of management, marketing, graphic artwork, fundraising and programming. Rabbi Moshe Druin lives in North Miami Beach, Florida, with his wife and children.

• Mysteries of the Hebrew Letters. Can letters be more than just a tool for language? Revealing the secrets beyond what you see at first glance. Beyond the artistic beauty of their shapes, woven into these letters are deep and inspirational meanings that provide lessons and guidance for living. But then, would you expect anything less from G-dly letters?

Aitz Chaim is very fortunate to be able to bring someone of Rabbi Druin’s stature to Great Falls.

FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT

The Band’s Visit is a stage musical with music and lyrics by David Yazbek and a book by Itamar Moses, based on the 2007 Israeli film of the same name.

May 21, 2018 – After nearly 800 Tiny Desk concerts, The Band’s Visit is the first Broadway musical ever to play the series.

https://www.npr.org/event/music/612283582/the-bands-visit-tiny-desk-concert

“The Band’s Visit” Dominates Tony Awards
NEW YORK (Reuters) – “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” won the Tony for best play on Sunday while “The Band’s Visit” swept the musical categories with 10 Tony awards including best musical.

From The New York Times:
Breaking news for Broadway theatergoers, even — or perhaps especially — those who thought they were past the age of infatuation: It is time to fall in love again.

One of the most ravishing musicals you will ever be seduced by … is called “The Band’s Visit,” and its undeniable allure is not of the hard-charging, brightly blaring sort common to box-office extravaganzas.

Instead, this portrait of a single night in a tiny Israeli desert town confirms a lyric that arrives, like nearly everything in this remarkable show, on a breath of reluctantly romantic hope: “Nothing is as beautiful as something you don’t expect.”
