FILM SERIES. THE QUEST OF HOW TO SPIN BEAUTY FROM HUMAN DESPAIR.
By Judith Cohen
The movie that we will be screening is MAUDIE. It is about the self taught artist Maudie Lewis. The actors who play the two main characters are Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawk. It is a dramatic display or artist talents from both of them involving the ability to develop real human and interesting characters from closed people. The story is about a Nova Scotia woman who works as a housekeeper while she hones her skills as an artist and eventually becomes independent and beloved by many. There are a few what we might call caveman moments where a strange tenderness emerges. As usual, the best stories are the true ones.
Wine, cheese and cake will be served. Tickets can be purchased at the door or calling 185 9191 for reservations during office hours, Monday thru Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
We added new air conditioning and chairs for your comfort and convenience. We cordially invite all people from the community at large. Suggested donation is 100 pesos.

Please join us for a lively, musical short Shabbat service. We will be honoring the varied traditions of Judaism by using known and contemporary poetry, songs, stories and prose. Participants are requested sing, read, and participate. In addition to the beautiful music we will explore the Torah exemplar of welcoming the stranger in our lives.
The event will start with a meet and greet oneg Shabbat at 5;30. Services will begin at 6 and becompleted by 7 pm in time for participants to have evening plans.
Services will be led by Maxine Graboyes, an experienced Cantorial soloist who has led services for 23 years in Vail, Colorado, as well as being a professional singer on Broadway and beyond. She brings a beauty and enthusiasm to singing that enables all the participants to join in, raise their voices and experience the Joy of the Sabbath.
Joining her in leading the service is Judith Jenya, Drashaneit. Judith is a life- time explorer of various Jewish paths, accomplished speaker and honored humanitarian and former director of alarge Reform synagogue in California.
Everyone is welcome, your joyous participation is desired and your comments on creating other services is encouraged. We hope to create a community and home for non traditional Jews and those who may not have joined in other types of Jewish services in San Miguel.
