Portland Film Premiere – Chavruta: A Drummer’s Bat Mitzvah @ Mittleman Jewish Community Center
Apr 16 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for the Portland premiere of this 15-minute documentary short by Jodi Darby. The film follows two Jewish Portland artists, drummer/writer/environmentalist Lisa Schonberg and musician/writer/Jewish educator Alicia Jo Rabins, as they prepare for Lisa’s adult bat mitzvah. The word chavruta refers to the traditional partner-style study of Jewish texts; over the course of one year, the two women delve into a grassroots, feminist, distinctly Portland course of study.

Free, but suggested donation of $5 at the door.

7:00 pm at the MJCC.
