It’s been a fairly slow start to 2011 for Vancouver Hillel, at least from my perspective. No George Galloway or UBC student groups to stir things up. Perhaps the weather is to blame. Winter in the PNW is infamously drab, and the overcast skies have a tendency to dampen even the brightest spirits. But as we all know, when it rains it pours, so it was hardly surprising when three Arts and Entertainment events were announced within the span of a week.
On Wednesday, acclaimed Israeli musician Geva Alon will be performing at the University of British Columbia Hillel House. A couple days later, on Feb. 10, the Chutzpah! Festival for the Jewish Performing Arts begins. At Chutzpah!, various venues throughout Vancouver will host performers from around the world. And lastly, in mid-March, actor/musician Dudu Fisher will perform at a local synagogue.
I am happy to finally see some action in what has been an otherwise quiet new year. And I will be blogging about those events that I am able to attend. So think of this post as a sneak peak into what is coming down the line.
