Billy Jonas Concert

Billy Jonas

Saturday 10:30 PM–11:30 PM Manhattan Theater

Arts & Performance

Throw out the rules when Billy Jonas hits the stage! It’s a musical conversation … a sonic celebration … a splendiferous gathering of the tribe. He’s a one-man band, and a mad scientist of the spirit, weaving his experiences into original songs that explore the sacred as well as the inane. His primary instrument is the audience; in addition he plays an assortment of “industrial re-percussion” instruments made from found, foraged, and recycled materials. All ages are welcome, though this will be an adult/general audience oriented concert. Young folks must be accompanied by an adult.

Canceled, sorry

College/University Student Recommended, Film, Global History & Culture, Identity & Responsibility

When Hitler seized power in1933, Jewish intellectuals at German universities were targeted for expulsion. After fleeing to the US, many continued their academic careers teaching at historically all-Black colleges in the South, including Howard University, Hampton Institute and Talladega College. While the refugee scholars provided great talent to the schools’ faculty, the colleges offered the professors a new home, students eager to learn, and an inside look at an America that few ever saw.

Learning to Speak Hebrew: A Dream or a Nightmare?

A New Revolutionary Method to Learn Hebrew

Yoel Ganor

Saturday 10:30 PM–11:45 PM Bentley's fireside

College/University Student Recommended, Israel

Learning Hebrew should be fun! Grammar drills? Not at Ulpan-Or. Ulpan-Or does not quiz you on nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Such an approach is bound to fail, given how boring it is. Instead, Ulpan-Or takes a more subtle approach, revealing the structure of the Hebrew language as you listen and practice speaking. The Rapid Language Acquisition (RLA) method gives you the tools you need to start forming your own Hebrew sentences from the very first session. Reading and writing? These skills are also naturally acquired.

Run for Your Life

Erica Sigmon

Saturday 10:30 PM–11:45 PM Hudson III

Fred Lebow, an eccentric man who inspired thousands to go the distance, was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family that fled Europe. Lebow launched the New York City Marathon, and eventually transformed it into the world’s largest marathon. Encompassing all 5 boroughs, the run was a source of civic pride during troubled times. Set amidst the urban funk of the 1970s, the film’s retro styling combines archival footage and interviews with the family, athletes, city officials and journalists.
