The Art of Aging


Tuesday, March 19 - Friday, May 31, 2019
Gotthelf Art Gallery
Lawrence Family JCC

The Art of Aging, a fine arts exhibition, celebrates the positive aspects of maturity through the lens of Jewish values. Created by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum, the exhibition explores the ways in which aging is less an inexorable process and more of a lifelong journey affecting the dynamics of human relationships, creativity, memory, continuity, and growth.

Temple Adat Shalom, 15905 Pomerado Rd, Poway

In the dizzying spin of the 21st century, we have achieved marriage equality in all 50 states for LGBTQ people, there are openly gay and lesbian leaders in every field, and transgender rabbis, athletes, actors, government leaders, and everyday Americans are more able to live their lives as their truest selves. We will examine Jewish texts that deal with gender, sexuality, and inclusion as a way to situate the conversation within a Jewish context. You may be surprised to learn how much Judaism has to see about these very contemporary issues, and how advanced Jewish teachings have been on these sometimes-controversial topics.

Jamie Bernstein
Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 7pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre

Jamie Bernstein the oldest daughter of Leonard Bernstein, one of the 20th century’s most revered musicians, offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth. Chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic, composer of West Side Story, Candide, On the Waterfront, and On the Town, Renaissance artist in a variety of musical forms, humanitarian and all-around celebrity, he held court with everyone from the Kennedys to the Black Panthers to John Lennon. In this intimate portrait of a complicated and occasionally tormented artist and father, Jamie Bernstein—a celebrated concert narrator, broadcaster, journalist, poet, and radio producer/host in her own right—tells a great American story about one of the greatest Americans of the modern age.

“In the year of Leonard Bernstein’s centenary, with its worldwide celebrations, this book is a startling inside view…a story of encompassing family love, Jewish-American style, with all its glories and corrosions.” –The New Yorker

JENNY SCHEINMAN’S KANNAPOLIS: A Moving Portrait

Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 8pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre
Lawrence Family JCC

Acclaimed composer, singer, and violinist Jenny Scheinman accompanies the captivating visual world of Depression-era filmmaker H. Lee Waters, who documented over 118 small towns in the southeast between 1936-42. A frequent collaborator with musicians such as Bill Frisell, Ani Difranco and Norah Jones, Scheinman and her musical sidemen provide a live soundtrack seasoned with bluegrass, country, and roots music. Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait takes audiences on a journey back into America’s industrial past that speaks to any community today as much as to the towns where it was filmed.
"A beautifully coordinated melding of music and film... a vivid image of small-town life, morphing back and forth almost imperceptibly between black-and-white and color."
The Washington Post
"Scheinman [has] a distinctive vision of American music, suffused with plainspoken beauty and fortified all at once by country, gospel, and melting-pot folk, along with jazz and the blues.”
The New York Times

David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre

Join Pulitzer finalist Nathan Englander (Dinner at the Center of the Earth, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank) for Shabbat dinner and conversation about his best work yet—a brilliant satire, reminiscent of early Philip Roth, about a son’s failure to say Kaddish for his dead father. Larry is an atheist in a family of orthodox Memphis Jews. When his father dies, it is his responsibility as the surviving son to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. Larry refuses—thus imperiling the fate of his father’s soul. To appease his family, he hires a stranger through a website called kaddish.com to recite the daily prayer and shepherd his father’s soul safely to rest. See the full Shabbat dinner menu here.

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 10:30am
Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Avenue, Coronado

Music has been a part of Jewish life since biblical times and remains integral to the Jewish religious and cultural experience. Jewish music tends to blend unique elements with aspects that reflect the cultures in which Jews have lived, composed, played instruments and sung. In this presentation, we will explore several distinct types of Jewish music including Ladino (with Sepahrdic roots), Yiddish (with E. European roots), American Jewish folk and Broadway music, including composers and songwriters as diverse as George Gershwin, Stephen Sondheim, Carole King and Paul Simon, and Israeli music with its rich tradition of immigrant and native-born musical artists. Do you think you have a favorite "style" of Jewish music? You may learn to appreciate something new during this musical lecture.

In Honor of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day
The Tattooist of Auschwitz
With Author Heather Morris

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 7:00pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre

“I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.” We are honored to be joined by Heather Morris to discuss her international and New York Times bestselling novel based on a true story. For readers of Schindler's List and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas comes a heart-breaking true story of the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances. The book tells the true story of Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov, a Jewish prisoner who was given the job of tattooing identification numbers on prisoners’ arms in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. One day, he met Gita while she was waiting in line to be tattooed and it was love at first sight. And so began one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz. A book signing will follow the event.

“Based on a true story, the wrenching yet riveting tale of Lale’s determination to survive the camp with Gita is a moving testament to the power of kindness, ingenuity, and hope.” — People Magazine

Leona is an intimate, insightful, and moving film that tells the story of Ariela, a young Jewish woman from Mexico City who finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love. It’s ripe with all the drama and interpersonal conflicts of a Jane Austen novel. Watching Ariela negotiate the labyrinth of familial pressure, religious precedent, and her own burgeoning sentiment is both painful and beautiful—there are no easy choices to be made.

David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre

Alon Shaya learned to cook while hanging onto the apron strings of his mother and grandmother. But by the time the Tel Aviv-born, Philly-raised chef moved to New Orleans and won the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in America, shrimp, gumbo and jambalaya had made their way into his shakshuka—and okra had found a partner in black-eyed peas. Join us for a special Shabbat dinner to hear about — and sample — that culinary journey, in celebration of Shaya's cookbook/memoir, Shaya: An Odyssey of Food, My Journey Back to Israel. As you enjoy some of Chef Shaya's most raved-about creations, you'll hear the stories of the places, people and food that have informed his journey from Tel Aviv to NOLA and back again.

Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews


Tuesday, August 27 - Sunday, September 29, 2019
Opening Night Reception: Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at 7:00pm

Gotthelf Art Gallery
Lawrence Family JCC

The personal stories of American Jewish activists and Soviet Jews – known as refuseniks – will be brought to life in Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews, a new traveling exhibition created by NMAJH. It will explore the significance of this dramatic, risky, and emotionally fraught social justice movement, what The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg has called "the most successful human rights campaign of our time." After World War II, Jews who lived in the Soviet Union were denied the rights to live freely, practice Judaism, or leave the country. A worldwide human rights effort on their behalf brought together organizations, student activists, community leaders, and thousands of individuals – and reached the highest echelons of the American government. The exhibition will serve as a reminder of the unique promise of religious freedom and our continuing responsibility to preserve and protect that freedom.

*Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews was created by the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia and this project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services
