BLUE THREAD @ OJM Sunday March 18th

A new book and new fictional novelist will appear at Oregon Jewish Museum in NW Portland this Sunday at 2pm.

Ruth Tenzer Feldman has been writing books for some time but this is her first fictional novel. The book is a piece of historical fiction that features a time-traveling heroine.

The event will include commentary from some young women readers as well as the author. 
A tallit takes on an important role in the book. To celebrate that, local silk artist Diane Fredgant will also participate in this event and display some of her most colorful tallitot.

This is a special Jewish Arts Moments event.....and it is free!

OJM is located at 1953 Northwest Kearney Street

Acting Our Age ....ROUND II

Saturday March 10th, 2pm you can hear some wonderfully creative poems and short stories written but the Older But Wiser Writing Class. WHERE? Geezer Gallery in Multnomah Village.'s free and it's fun!

on another note......
Thank you Regional Arts and Culture Council! We have a grant from them to fund another round of plays.

The writers are fantastic....! Not because they are elders in our community but because their talents help bust the myths of our society about what aging means. 

Eleven residents of Rose Schnitzer Manor gather weekly to write poetry, short stories and one-act plays!
The RACC grant allows us to bring Playwright Matt Zrebski on board to teach the residents about the secrets of good playwriting. His insights and humor make for enjoyable classes. His students are just weeks away from finishing up our one-acts. 

Stay tuned for dates and venue information. It's coming soon!
