Franz Boas: The Father of American Anthropology and a Post Ceremonial Jew

Monday, January 7, 2019 at 7pm
Seacrest Village, 211 Saxony Rd, Encinitas
Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 10:30am
Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Avenue, Coronado

Frank Boas was a scholar, academic and activist who almost single-handedly transformed American anthropology from a field dominated by amateurs to a full-fledged professional, academic discipline. A German-born Jewish immigrant who had experienced anti-Semitism in his native land and in the US, Boas was especially effective in dismantling hierarchical theories of race, language and culture. Most of his works centered on Native Indians, African Americans and southern and eastern European immigrants in the US. As an activist, he expressed his revulsion against immigration restriction and anti-black prejudice and discrimination. In this lecture, Prof. Nalven will introduce us to Boas' contribution to his chosen field with particular emphasis on his complex Jewish identity.

Tio Chorinho: A Tribute to Jacob do Bandolim

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 8pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre
Lawrence Family JCC

Toronto’s Tio Chorinho performs a tribute to the great Brazilian-Jewish mandolin virtuoso Jacob do Bandolim on his 101st birthday during the month of Carnival in Brazil. One of the founders of choro, the original Brazilian soul music, Bandolim’s compositions virtually defined the choro style through the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, and he remains one of the most endearing figures in Brazilian music to this day. This exciting tribute to one of Brazil’s greatest Jewish composers features creative arrangements by contemporary masters Tio Chorinho. Charming and powerful music with a sensual lyricism from one of the guiding lights of the Jewish Diaspora.
“An absolute delight...outstanding playing...It’s a terrific debut CD; play it on a grey day and your room will be filled with sunshine” -The Wholenote Magazine

Nellie McKay Performs THE BIG MOLINKSY: CONSIDERING JOAN RIVERS

Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 8pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre
Lawrence Family JCC

Nellie McKay exploded onto the music scene in 2004 with her eclectic showstopper, Get Away from Me. Upending the norms of piano-backed jazz with a seamless merger of musical erudition and thematic irreverence, it was, as the New York Times observed, “a tour de force from a sly, articulate musician.” With a voice that can be boisterous and bold or soft and breathy, McKay harnesses the agility of a superstar athlete from the piano bench. She has maintained that adventurousness — starring on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera, opening for Lou Reed at Carnegie Hall, duetting with Eartha Kitt and recording a dazzling tribute to Doris Day. In her onewoman show The Big Molinsky: Considering Joan Rivers, McKay delivers a performance for the ages as the talented and treasured Joan Rivers (playing a few other people in Rivers’ life to boot).

Rehearsal Room, Lawrence Family JCC
Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 7pm
Congregation Beth-El, 8660 Gilman Dr, La Jolla

AM SESSION:
In general, only men issue halachic statements in the Talmud. But women appear often in anecdotes, and a close reading thereof reveals that women sometimes took the law into their own hands and made changes in it for personal reasons. In this session, we’ll see the kinds of changes women made in the law and the reasons behind them. Text handouts in Hebrew and English.

PM SESSION:
This presentation is based on a discussion in Bavli Shabbat, which takes up the question of what to do when one sees people misbehaving, whether they are government officials or neighbors, and whether they are breaking religious or civil laws. Via anecdotes and midrashim, a demanding and contemporarily relevant moral principle emerges.

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.

JENNY SCHEINMAN’S KANNAPOLIS: A Moving Portrait

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.”

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.

End of the Silence

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 8pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre
Lawrence Family JCC

Written and performed by Dan Wolf
Directed by Gendell Hing-Hernandez
Music by Keith Pinto.


World premiere of a solo play from acclaimed Bay Area actor/playwright/rapper Dan Wolf whose performances cross borders to combine conventional theater styles with the themes, language, music, history and aesthetics of the Hip-Hop generation. End of the Silence is about a podcaster making a podcast. Using field recordings, voice actors, music, video, movement, spoken word and rap, this performance follows a Jewish - American man as he makes a podcast about his relationship with, and the untimely death of, an artist from Hamburg, Germany. The show plays out like a live podcast as Daniel (the writer and director) uses shards of a fragmented history to attempt to heal the wounds of time.

With incredible energy and seamless staging, the show has the effect of being lost in a good book, not sitting in a theater. -San Francisco Chronicle
