Hineni: Now Where Do I Go? -- Thursday, July 28th, 7:00 pm, Livestreamed from Brooklyn

The Forward presents an evening of conversation about how millennial American Jews are building community in, and outside of, traditional spaces.

“Hineni” — which means “Here I am” — is a conversation with diverse Jews from across New York City discussing what is gained (and lost) by making Jewish life outside of traditional spaces, whether denominations are still effective and what this potential shift away from traditional spaces means for American Judaism culturally and politically.

A Virtual Documentary Film Screening -- Beyle: The Artist and Her Legacy -- Sunday, August 7th, 7:00 pm

Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman was a woman whose life and work bridged the old world with the new. Following in the footsteps of her activist father and folk singer mother, she dedicated her life to preserving and transmitting Yiddish language and culture. Her influence reached across continents until her death in 2013, and lives on in a new generation. 

Beyle: The Artist and Her Legacy tells the story of Beyle’s rich life through archival recordings along with newly recorded oral history interviews with family, friends, and colleagues – in both English and in Yiddish. In keeping with Beyle’s multimedia artistic practice, we have translated her paintings and sketches into whimsical animations, and weaved her story through the tradition of oral history and into a film.
