Two Great Israel Events In February

Rav Yosef Kanefsky writes from

Please circle two dates on your February calendars for two great Israel events:

The first is Saturday night, Feb. 20, when we’ll be enjoying the Israeli hit movie Noodle at the Lions Gate theater in Culver City.
The film is truly delightful, the theater will be all ours that night, and where else can you still see a movie for just $8?!  We chose Noodle both because it truly transports us to Israel for the evening, and because in its own beautiful way raises important questions about the pressing and complex social issue of foreign workers in Tel Aviv. And I’m delighted to share that the Deputy Consul General, Gil Artzyeli, who is an expert on this topic, will be sharing some thoughts and taking our questions after the film is over.  Please be sure to RSVP today to Vivian Lurie at .

On Tuesday evening the 23rd, Bnei Akiva will be holding its annual Evening of Jewish Heroism (click on it).  This event is an important expression of our solidarity with Israel, our support for the work of Bnei Akiva, and it is always  a deeply inspiring event, re-affirming our faith in the Jewish people and in the inner strength if the State of Israel. The above link has all of the details, and I urge you to participate. As a shul, let’s stand up and be counted at this significant community event.
