The Surprises of Jewish and Polish Poland

The last thing I expected to find in Poland was a hot Jewish scene. I had to rub my eyes to believe what I was seeing. Travelers of all religions, ages, cultural backgrounds, and nationalities flocked to Jewish-related sites eager to explore a world that was all but eliminated when Nazi Germany murdered 3,000,000 Jews,… Read More »

The Jewish Millennial Project

There is plenty of conversation around the term “Jewish millennials” and what they want out of their jobs, their lifestyles, their philanthropy, their spirituality.

Suspension of Western Wall deal leaves Jewish leaders feeling betrayed

Sam Green + Yo La Tengo “The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller: A Live Documentary”
Sep 19 @ 7:00 pm

Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground), in collaboration with legendary indie band Yo La Tengo, takes the stage to create a “live documentary” that explores 20th-century futurist, architect, engineer and inventor Buckminster Fuller’s utopian vision of radical social change through urban redesign. Fuller, inventor of the Geodesic Dome, foresaw solutions to environmental challenges through “doing more with less” so that everyone would have enough. At each screening/performance, Green narrates the film in person and cues images while Yo La Tengo performs their original score. Wildly creative and experimental in form, The Love Song of Buckminster Fuller draws inspiration equally from old travelogues, the Japanese Benshi tradition, and TED Talks.
