Rav Yosef Kanefsky writes from BnaiDavid.com:
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. http://www.israelifilms.co.il/40420/Noodle
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 firstname.lastname@example.org .

Born in Washington DC and bred in New Jersey, Simcha is our only comedian who also doubles as a Rabbi. A self-dubbed spiritual gangster, he draws out the comedic side of sprituality, G-d, world religion, meditation, drugs, as well as the counter-culture, music, and anything written by Tom Robbins. We are happy to welcome Simcha back to the festival to, once again, press the reset button on all stereotypes: Jewish, Rabbinic or otherwise.
Take a look at his website!
