Spokane Jewish Cultural Film Festival: “Heading Home”

Thursday, January 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$7 – $10

“Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel” is the David-and-Goliath story of Israel’s national baseball team as it competes for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of crushing defeats, Israel finally ranks among the world’s best in 2017. Its roster includes many Jewish-American major leaguers, most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, few having set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from the Holy Land to the tournament in South Korea, where they must debunk their reputations as has-beens and wannabes.

The film will be introduced by Julie Morris, Spokane Area Jewish Family Services board member and Hadassah Foundation chair. All attendees are eligible for a drawing to win 2019 Spokane Indians tickets!

Last week’s show of unity at the U.N. was unprecedented.

Gay pride flags should not be banned in classrooms

I agree that in general, classrooms shouldn't be a place to push a particular political ideology or campaign. However, simply being gay in school isn't a political campaign. It's a recognition that a teacher's classroom is a safe place for gay kids. If that's political to you, even if the teacher never once mentions a political candidate, you've probably got a problem with the existence of the gay kids.
