JBS Film Premiere: Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray
The story of the 10,000 Jewish soldiers who fought in America's deadliest war, the Civil War -- brother against brother, Jew against Jew, in numbers proportionally higher than other American group, 7,000 for the Union and 3,000 for the Confederacy.
The film shows how some prominent Jews, including Jewish slave-owners, cited the Torah to justify slavery, while others were leaders in the abolitionist movement or established their synagogues as stops on the Underground Railroad.
The film also shows the history of Ulysses S. Grant's infamous "General Order No. 11" expelling Jews from Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi; the rise of Sephardic Jew Judah P. Benjamin to Secretary of State of the Confederacy; the imprisonment of Confederate spy Eugenia Levy Phillips; and the unlikely story of Abraham Lincoln's Jewish doctor who moved through the South as a Union spy.
Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Milius (Apocalypse Now) narrates the film and Sam Waterston is the voice of Abraham Lincoln

The Israel at 70 Miami Mission was full of wonder and ruach, but the last day provided a sense of community that will always be remembered. On Sunday, April 22, participants gathered in the Jerusalem Theatre for a historic — and surprise — event with Koolulam, the Israeli social action singing sensation. In a little less than two hours, our group of more than 800 was divided into three parts, taught the lyrics and harmony to Matisyahu’s “One Day,” and then performed together, creating the first-ever international version of Koolulam’s singing initiative. And it was all caught on video!

Shalom! Hello, everyone! I'm a male in my early 40's. I have been working with various types of restaurants including Kosher and graduated from culinary school back in 2002, but I ended up working as a personal cook/driver/butler for 7 years until last year and I love it! I'm aware of the fact a successful personal cook/butler will need everything to run smoothly. I'm very good with children and I'm also a father. I'm trying to get back to work in the field that I'm comfortable and I enjoy working in this field. I work hard but its enjoyable! As they said, choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. If you are interested in my services, kindly contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you and have a wonderful day!
