May You and Your Family Be Healthy & Happy in 2021!
EXCITING NEWS...I'll be doing a podcast with Israelis and Palestinians working on Peace with "Peace with Penny" in January. Maybe even throw in some Peace within Ourselves. I'll let you know when we'll start and I hope you can visit. Ask your questions. And especially know that there are folks on both sides wanting Peace, שלום, سلام. Here’s my latest post on reminders 2020 gave us that I’m grateful for:
May You Live in Peace, שלום, سلام
Join Me on My Journey,
Penny S. Tee
This holiday season, more than ever, “There’s No Place Like Shalom”.
Max & Willy's Last Laugh is a new play with music approaching a holocaust story from a different angle. The staged readings will be taking place in Los Angeles 12/7 8pm and 12/8 5pm. Based on the true story of comedian Max Ehrlich, and his best friend, composer Willy Rosen who were sent to the Westerbork Transit Camp in 1942. The commandant recognized Max and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse: Every Monday night before the train leaves for Auschwitz the next morning, Max and Willy will do a cabaret. IF they are funny, they do it next week. If not — they are on the train.
Hey folks, does anyone know where I can get a gluten-free challah on the east side/DTLA? Thank you!
SlJCC folks!! As some of you know, I direct the Jewish Youth Orchestra on the Eastside of Los Angeles. We are currently hoping to increase our enrollment this year, as we have many performance opportunities! Our advanced ensemble will be taking part in the Violins of Hope concert at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. They will also play in January at the Pasadena City Hall for politicians, faith leaders and the community for "Every Person Has a Name". If you know of any family who has a kid who plays an instrument, please message me - we have scholarships available, as well as carpooling opportunities.
So pumped for our first Sweet Potato Music class at the SIJCC!|sweet-potato-music|21158

Hello SIJCC! I am an LA-based documentary filmmaker working with film director Cathy R Fischer on a documentary about the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors (3Gs) who have tattooed their grandparents' concentration camp numbers on their own bodies. Cathy is the daughter of two Holocaust survivors. Her 94-year-old mother has a tattoo from Auschwitz and several of the 3Gs in Cathy's extended family have tattoos that mirror their grandparents’.

If anyone in your community knows of 3Gs or other descendants who bear their relatives’ numbers in a tattoo (located anywhere), please invite them to reach out to us at [email protected]. Cathy and I can share more about the project and answer any questions.

We would be grateful for your help spreading the word. Thank you!

as water takes the shape of its container, the mind when it contemplates an object is transformed into the shape of that object. the mind which thinks of the all-pervading divinity which it worships, is ultimately through long-continued devotion transformed into the likeness of that divinity -- b.k.s. iyengar
