Tikkun Leyl Shavuot - A Shavuot Evening Study
Saturday, June 8, 7:30 pm 

Join Rabbi Marina Yergin for a dairy dinner, a short film, and discussion! Featuring the film, The Tribe.

The Tribe is an unorthodox, unauthorized, history of the Jewish people and the Barbie doll…in about 18 minutes. What can the most successful doll on the planet show us about being Jewish today? Narrated by Peter Coyote, the film mixes old school narration with a new school visual style. The Tribe weaves together archival footage, graphics, animation, Barbie dioramas, and slam poetry to take audiences on an electric ride through the complex history of both the Barbie doll and the Jewish people—from Biblical times to present day. By tracing Barbie’s history, the film sheds light on the questions: What does it mean to be an American Jew today? What does it mean to be a member of any tribe in the 21st Century? The first documentary to reach #1 on iTunes, The Tribe premiered at Sundance in 2006, has won 17 awards, and is used in hundreds of Jewish and educational institutions around the world. 

A dairy dinner will be served, and the cost is $15.00 per person. Please reserve your spot ONLINE or call Dollie Closna at 210-733-9135 ext. 126.
