My Neighbourhood – truah.org, myneighourhood.com Saturday, June 29, 8-10 pm* Preceded by Havdalah to culminate the sabbath
My Neighbourhood is a Peabody Award winning documentary short, that chronicles the story of Mohammed El Kurd, a Palestinian teenager forced to share a section of his house with Israeli settlers.

BeyondBelief — www.metacafe.com Sunday, July 21, 3-5 pm
This documentary relates the story of Susan Retik and Patti Quigley, two ordinary soccer moms living in the affluent suburbs of Boston until the tragedy of September 11 strikes. Rather than turning inwards, grief compels these women to focus on the country where the terrorists who took their husbands’ lives were trained: Afghanistan. Over the course of two years, as they cope with loss and struggle to raise their families as single mothers, these extraordinary women dedicate themselves to empowering Afghan widows whose lives have been ravaged by decades of war, poverty and oppression – factors they consider to be the root causes of terrorism. From the ruins of the World Trade Center to those of Kabul and back, theirs is a journey of personal strength and international reconciliation, and a testament to the vision that peace can be forged – one woman at a time.
Crazy, Sexy Cancer – www.crazysexycancer.com Sunday, August 11, 3-5 pm
Crazy Sexy Cancer is an irreverent and uplifting documentary about a young woman looking for a cure and finding her life. In 2003, 31-year-old actress/photographer Kris Carr was diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer. Weeks later she began filming her story. Taking a seemingly tragic situation and turning it into a creative expression, Kris shared her inspirational story of survival with courage, strength, and lots of humor. With experimental treatment as her only option, Kris became determined to find answers where there were none. She traveled throughout the country interviewing experts in alternative medicine as she tenaciously dove head first into a fascinating and often hilarious holistic world. Along the way, she met other vivacious young women determined to become survivors. Their stories are as poignant and exciting as the women who tell them. As Kris’s amazing journey unfolds, she realizes that healing is about truly living rather than fighting. Crazy Sexy Cancer is more than a thought provoking film, it’s an attitude! It’s about rising to the challenge of life and turning lemons into champagne.
Hatikvah, which means “The Hope,” reflects the Jewish people’s 2000-year old hope of reclaiming and restoring their ancient homeland of Israel as a great nation.

A: The upcoming Tzedek v’Shalom seder hosted by is different from a family seder in a variety of ways. In fact, it is different from seders the congregation has hosted in the past.
The 2012 Tzedek v’Shalom Community Seder will take place on the eighth night of Passover — not one of the first two nights. Rabbi Anna Boswell-Levy, currently on maternity leave, will not even attend. Instead, Bobbie Posmontier will lead the creative celebration and promises lots of singing and “a spectacular rendition of Chad Gadya [a traditional Passover song] as never experienced before — with 18-part harmony!” With a voice reminiscent of Eartha Kitt’s, Bobbie always makes a group to comfortable and eager to sing along. Ralph Posmontier will accompany on drums — as he usually does at our services. All are encouraged to bring a small instrument and add their voices.
The seder will be family friendly, with the our children presenting a short play. In addition, we will introduce a social service project chosen by its members for the entire congregation — children and adults — with the Homeless Shelter, which operates under the auspices of the Family Service Association of Bucks County.
Finally, the seder will be completed with a festive meat/pareve potluck meal. In addition, people bring their own matzah and wine selection.
In keeping with Tzedek v’Shalom’s tradition, there is no charge for the seder. An RSVP is requested, however, so that set-up includes space for everyone.
The Tzedek v’Shalom Community Seder will take place Friday, April 13 at 6 p.m. at Newtown Friends Meetinghouse, 219 Court Street, Newtown, PA 18940. For more information or to RSVP, call (215) 860-0119 and someone will return your call.
