Monday, August 13, is the first evening of our 2007-2008 season.
This is our 7th year, and thank you all for your support! Also we
welcome the Women's Interfaith Dialogue on the Middle East for their
sponsorship of this evening.
Join us at the usual time and place.
Time: 7 p.m.
Venue: Noe Valley Ministry at 1021 Sanchez
Come and meet New York filmmaker and writer and community activist, LILY RIVLIN, who will be our guest speaker. See Lily's
fascinating film,"Can You Hear Me?" about the vicissitudes and complexities of Arab-Jewish women in dialogue in combination with the
Academy Award winning short, comedic film, "West Bank Story."
This free event will be co-sponsored by the Odd Monday Series, Ramon and
Judith Sender and the Noe Valley Ministry. Thanks, as well, to our
evening's co-sponsor, Women's Interfaith Dialogue on the Middle East.
Rivlin is known for her work as Meretz USA past-President, for her film "The Tribe" (2001) about her own family history and "Can You Hear Me?" a well-reviewed documentary shown at numerous universities and film festivals including the Mill Valley Film Festival. Lily is currently working on a film about Grace Paley: "State of Grace," which follows the path of Paley, a master short story writer, political activist, teacher, mother and wife.
Women's Interfaith Dialogue on the Middle East was founded almost 30 years ago by Edith Coliver and Miriam Levy with the support of Sister Bernadette Giles, Samira Baroody and Afaf Kanafani and Sylvia Reback. Gail Nebenzahl, Marcia Soffer, Evelyn Levin, Phyllis Schneider, Lorraine Honig and Judith Sender continue to support this organization in its programs regarding education and dialogue about the Middle East.
As is our custom, the evening's program will be preceded by a no-host dinner including
pizza/small entree and salad and beverage for approximately 15 dollars.
Restaurant: Noe Valley Pizza at 24th and Sanchez 1-1/2 blocks downhill
from the Ministry at 5:30 p.m.
Parking is available at 5 dollars for six hours across the street from the Noe Valley Pizza. The 24 line and the 48 line and the J Church are the nearby Muni transportation lines available.
Hoping you are Having a delightful, healthy summer!
