Gregory Porter: The Voice of Now

A two-time GRAMMY-winner for his smash 2013 release 'Liquid Spirit' and 2016 follow-up 'Take Me to the Alley,' Gregory Porter has undoubtedly become one of jazz's most important male vocalists - a soul-drenched singer at his best delivering his emotionally charged original songs. With a deep rich voice, he can croon like Lou Rawls, soar like Marvin Gaye, and speak powerful truths like Gil Scott-Heron, while doing it all with heart and grace.

This trip is made possible by a grant from the community-wide Senior Excursion Fund of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma, for seniors who are mobility, financially, or physically impaired and for whom this trip would not otherwise be possible.

Participants may attend only one of five Senior Excursion trips between 7/1/2017 and 6/30/2018. Home pick-ups $10/location. Registration required.

Jewish Folktales Retorld: Artist as Maggid

The Contemporary Jewish Museum presents newly commissioned works by sixteen contemporary artists in response to a selection of tales from the Jewish folklore. Acting as modern 'maggids' (storytellers), the artists explore the characters, themes, and metaphors from the selected tales. Our docent-led tour of the exhibition will be followed by an optional one-hour art workshop, giving you an opportunity to create using the concepts, ideas, and artistic techniques discussed in the gallery.

A boxed lunch can be pre-purchased from Wise Sons Jewish Deli for an additional $20 fee (choice of smoked turkey on wheat, pastrami on rye, egg salad on wheat or Chinese chicken salad; all served with chips, dill pickle, rugelach and bottled water), or you can get lunch on your own at the café or in the neighborhood.

Registrations and lunch orders are due by 11/22. CJM members may deduct $9.

La Traviata at Opera San Jose

'La traviata' tells the story of Violetta, one of the most beautiful woman in Paris. Dancing away her days, she survives on the generosity of the wealthiest men, living in luxury until she meets Alfredo, who, having nothing, offers her love instead. For a short spring, Violetta and Alfredo live an idyllic life in the country until his father convinces her that their relationship is harming Alfredo's sister. She gives him up and returns to a man who has kept her in the past, and everything crashes down around her.
