HAVDALAH AND A MOVIE
Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 7:00 PM
HAVA NAGILA THE MOVIE
It is instantly recognizable - musical shorthand for anything Jewish, a happy party tune that you dance to at weddings, bar mitzvahs and even at Major League Baseball games. It conjures up wistful smiles, memories of generations past...and no shortage of eye rolling. But as audiences will discover in Hava Nagila (The Movie), the song is much more than a tale of Jewish kitsch and bad bar mitzvah fashions. It carries with it an entire constellation of history, values and hopes for the future. In its own believe-it-or-not way, Hava Nagila encapsulates the Jewish journey over the past 150 years. It also reveals the power of one song to express and sustain identity, to transmit lessons across generations and to bridge cultural divides and connect us all on a universal level.

100 Women We Love: Rabbi Denise Eger
We are thrilled to present the 2013 list of 100 Women We Love - Including...
This year marks Denise Eger’s silver anniversary in the Rabbinate—and her appointment as President-Elect of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR), which serves more than 2,300 Reform Rabbis in North America; she’s the first out lesbian to serve in this role. Born in Memphis, Eger moved to the Golden State to study religion at USC and became a leading activist in the West Hollywood scene. In 1992, she founded congregation Kol Ami, a synagogue serving gay Jews and their allies in her adopted home of WeHo. Eger was also the first to officiate a lesbian wedding for that precious window of time in 2008 when same-sex marriage was legal in California. Eger sat on the board of Equality for All/No on Prop 8 and was a founder of the California Faith for Equality, organizing Jews in the marriage equality movement. “I hope that the LGBT community will remember that we have the power to change the religious and spiritual world with our love and communal strength and fight the forces that try to condemn us,” she tells GO. Eger continues to blog and tweet words of love, kindness and acceptance as she embarks on her next quarter century in the Rabbinate. -JF
