Kol Dvar will be broadcasting on the first and third Thursdays of the month. It will not be on tonight. Tune in next Thursday, June 20, at 6:00 p.m., to listen.
Tonight (Thursday) night at 6:00 pm is the second show of Kol Dvar, a Jewish radio show airing from Vallejo on OZCAT radio 89.5 FM or on the internet. The website is below. Tonight’s show is all about summer – songs of summer, the sun, heat, fun, travel and summer camp!
The show airs bimonthly on Thursday nights from 6 to 9 pm. It will feature the best of Israeli, American and international music, culture and humor by Jewish artists, writers, and entertainers. We will also feature local musicians who will occasionally perform live on the show. Please note that this is “old school” radio. You have to listen while it is on. You can’t download it for later.
Our chapter’s next big event will take place at the Benicia Relay for Life on August 24, 2013. We will be sponsoring a team to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. This is not a fundraiser for Hadassah but as we all know, cancer knows no boundaries.
The event is 24 hours long with an incredible ceremony on the evening of the 24th honoring cancer survivors and remembering those who have passed away. Our team: CBI, Hadassah, Family & Friends, will have a booth at the event. We are required to have someone on the track walking at all times (or at least most of the time). People can sleep overnight at the Benicia High School in tents, where the event takes place.
We need people to join our team, to help fundraise, to staff the booth and walk around the track. You can join our team “CBI-Hadassah Friends and Family,” by going to the Relay for Life website and inserting the name of our team in the search box. Even if you do not want to join the team, we can use your support. Come by on the day and cheer us on. You will find the event inspiring.
Solano Napa Hadassah will be presenting our annual movie night, Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. We will be showing the movie: Aimee and Jaguar. This is a true story about two women living in Berlin during WWII, one Jewish, the other Christian. The film explores their romantic relationship and gay life in Berlin during this time. While not rated, the movie may not be appropriate for children under the age of 17. It is in German with English subtitles.
The cost of the event is a suggested donation of $10.00 per person or $18.00 per couple. (A couple is not defined as a “married” couple so if you are single, bring a friend.) No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Our movie night will take place at Congregation B’nai Israel, 1256 Nebraska Street, Vallejo. Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we know how many people to expect.
Hadassah will be joining Congregation B’nai Israel this Friday, December 14, 2012 for the shabbat seder at 7:00 p.m. We will be celebrating Hanukah and eating all of that wonderful food fried in oil. Hope to see you there.

Henry Michalski and Donna Mendelsohn will be coming to Congregation B’nai Israel on Sunday November 11, 2012 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. to give us an audio visual presentation about their new book, Napa Valley’s Jewish Heritage. Despite the title of the book, there is plenty of “Vallejo content.” There are pictures of Congregation B’nai Israel’s early sisterhood, Hadassah and B’nai B’rith.
Our own Rachel Zrihen interviewed the authors and wrote an article for the Vallejo Times Herald, “Jewish_Heritage_unfolds_in_pages_of_new_book.” Read her article; she includes interesting information in it from the book.
The event is free although donations will be accepted. The authors will have copies of their book available for sale. Hadassah will hold a brief membership meeting prior to the beginning of the presentation.
There will be three events streamed live from Israel during the National Convention in Jerusalem.
The first will be the Convention’s opening program at about 6:15 a.m., Pacific Daylight time.
The next will be Prime Minister Netanyahu appearing at the convention and speaking at about 9:30 a.m., Pacific Daylight time.
The third will be the Hospital Dedication Ceremony at 11:00 a.m., Pacific Daylight time.
You can access the live stream from Hadassah’s website. The photo at the top, of Jerusalem, was taken by Liz Alpert, former president of our region.
For those of us not in Israel this week, you are invited to participate in our next Shmooze n’ News. This is a monthly discussion group which meets to discuss a variety of topics.

For more information, please contact Rachel Lessem.
