Cinema Jukebox: NASHVILLE

Nashville weaves the stories of twenty-four characters—from country star to wannabe to reporter to waitress—into a cinematic tapestry that is equal parts comedy, tragedy, and musical. Many members of the astonishing cast wrote their own songs and performed them live on location, which lends another layer to the film’s quirky authenticity. Altman’s ability to get to the heart of American life via its eccentric byways was never put to better use than in this grand, rollicking triumph, which barrels forward to an unforgettable conclusion.

TOS Talks Under the Dome is an exciting new series of lectures by some of the greatest minds on the national scene today. Great Thinkers cover a range of burning topics to challenge our minds and nurture our souls from the fields of art and culture, ethics, health, religion, science, and politics. On second Tuesdays this April, May and June, three dynamic speakers share their BIG Ideas followed by a provocative Q & A period led by our very own BIG Thinker, Rabbi Sonia Saltzman followed by a light reception with refreshments (included in ticket price). The conversation continues on erev Shabbat following each lecture during Friday Night Lights. 
Tickets will be available at the door by cash or check only. 

TOS Talks is supported by a generous 3-year grant from the E.H.A. Foundation, a philanthropic institution located in New York City devoted to serving education, health and the arts.

Tuesday, June 10 @ 7:30pm – Ron Suskind
PROGRAM UPDATE: “From D.C. to Disneyland:  The World in Perspective”

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Ron Suskind has covered stories from inside the Beltway, including Confidence Men describing the Obama White House and the fall of Wall Street, to Warren Buffett and the mysterious death of Celtics star Reggie Lewis.

His most personal and moving book, however, is perhaps the recently published and widely praised Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism  about how he and his family reach their autistic son through the common denominator of Disney film characters.

Mr. Suskind will cover a wide range of topics, with a special focus on his remarkable family story.

Rabbi Sonia Saltzman - Temple Ohabei Shalom

Rabbi Sonia Saltzman was ordained in 2008 as part of the first graduating class of the Rabbinical School at Hebrew College, an institution committed to a pluralistic approach to Jewish learning and practice. Upon ordination she served three years at Sha’arei Shalom, a non-affiliated community in Ashland, MA. She helped lead the community through a transition process including extensive new programming and relocation. During Rabbinical School Rabbi Saltzman held student pulpits at Temple Emanuel in Newton and at Temple Aliyah in Needham. She also completed chaplaincy training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and served as faculty for the Bronfman Youth Fellowship Program in Israel.

Prior to entering the rabbinate, Rabbi Saltzman worked in the field of micro-finance at ACCION International as head of the Financial Services Department, extending credit to small businesses in the developing world. She also worked in Bank of Boston’s Project Finance Department and taught in its Loan Officer Development Program.

Rabbi Saltzman is a graduate of Tufts University and holds a Masters Degree in International Affairs (Columbia University) and a Masters Degree in Bible and Jewish Thought (Brandeis University). She is married to Dr. Ned Saltzman, an urologist at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and has two grown sons, Benjamin and Gabriel.

Rabbi Saltzman grew up in Chile, in a home imbued with Jewish values, but at a time when opportunities for Jewish learning were especially limited for women. When asked why she entered the rabbinate, Rabbi Saltzman responds,

I believe in the wisdom and beauty of Judaism and hope to inspire others to deepen their relationship to Judaism by offering opportunities to engage with our sacred texts, to experience the richness of prayer and to build a caring and committed community.— RABBI SONIA SALTZMAN

Six Thinking Hats

Six Thinking Hats® is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps people be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. And once learned the tools can be applied immediately!

You and your team members can learn how to separate thinking into six valuable functions and roles. Each thinking role is identified with a colored symbolic "thinking hat." By mentally wearing and switching "hats," you can easily focus or redirect thoughts, the conversation, or the meeting.

Using Six Thinking Hats®, you and your team will learn how to:
•look at problems, decisions, and opportunities systematically

•use Parallel Thinking™ as a group or team to generate more, better ideas and solutions

•make meetings much shorter and more productive

•reduce conflict among team members or meeting participants

•stimulate innovation by generating more and better ideas quickly

•create dynamic, results oriented meetings that make people want to participate

•go beyond the obvious to discover effective alternate solutions

•spot opportunities where others see only problems

•think clearly and objectively

•view problems from new and unusual angles

•make thorough evaluations

•see all sides of a situation

•keep egos and "turf protection" in check

•achieve significant and meaningful results

Big Screen Classics: THELMA AND LOUISE

Thelma Dickinson (Geena Davis) has had enough of her domineering husband. She and her best friend Louise Sawyer (Susan Sarandon) decide to go on a road-trip in Louise's 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible to get away from their troubles. Their troubles don't stay far off, however, as they face one problem after another: attempted rape, murder, and flight from the law are just the beginning. As they become inadvertent fugitives, their choices and money rapidly begin to dwindle.

Glove Puppetry Boot Camp; Adult Puppetry Class

Glove puppetry (also known as hand puppetry) is one of the world’s oldest and most versatile theatrical traditions. From Punch and Judy to Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make-Believe, glove puppets can express an enormous range of character and emotion without ever blinking an eye.

In this fun and rigorous class, participants will learn the fundamentals of glove puppet manipulation from a professional puppeteer. Starting with basic exercises for manual dexterity and building towards complete multi-character scenes, students will acquire a “movement vocabulary” that lets their hands express almost any emotion or action. Participants will also gain exposure to Puppet Showplace Theatre’s unique archive of professional glove puppets and will be able to experience working behind a puppet stage.

Whether you're a seasoned performer or just looking for a way to enliven story time, this boot camp will leave your hands ready for action!

Big Screen Classics: POINT BREAK

Academy Award-winning director Katherine Bigelow has been making outstanding action films for a very long time. Even though Point Break did not win her the Oscar, it still remains the greatest American film of the 1990s.

Bigelow's loaded this one with everything; bullets, meatball subs, Lori Petty in a wet suit, Ronald Regan with a shotgun, bleeding LBJ's, beach parties, Anthony Kiedis, undercover cops, and Patrick Swayze. All jokes aside, we are as serious as a shark attack when it comes to the sheer awesomeness of Point Break. If you are pregnant, on any sort of heart medication, taking amphetamines, or have had more than three cups of coffee the day of, DO NOT ATTEND this action-packed, nitroglycerin-soaked piece of 90s perfection.

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

notloB Parlour Concerts presents...The Tannahill Weavers with Fresh Haggis

Tannahill Weavers
Roy Gullane, guitar
Phil Smillie, flute, bodhran, vocals
John Martin, fiddle, viola, cello, vocals
Lorne MacDougall, bagpipes, Scottish smallpipes and whistles
http://www.tannahillweavers.com/

 The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland 's premier traditional bands.  Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people.  These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can't get better...yet continue to do just that.  

The Tannahills have turned their acoustic excitement loose on audiences with an electrifying effect. They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable.  As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power and entire city for a year on the strength of last night's concert alone.  The music may be old-time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."  

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the group has made an international name for its special brand of Scottish music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms.  Over the years the Tannies have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.

They are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.  From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.  

"An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new."  New York Times  

"Scotland 's Tannahill Weavers play acoustic instruments, but the atmosphere at their shows is electric.  The quintet is as tight and as versatile as any band in the Celtic music revival.  They can summon rock 'n' roll intensity or haunting introspection."  The Boston Globe, Boston MA  

"...as close to perfect as it gets in an imperfect world."  Sing Out!

The Tannahill Weavers will be supported by....

Fresh Haggis
https://www.facebook.com/FreshHaggis
Elias Alexander (border pipes, vocals), Eamon Sefton (guitar, vocals), Kathleen Parks (fiddle, vocals).
Fresh Haggis is a dynamic new band formed of some of the finest young up-and-coming musicians on the Boston Celtic-music scene. Composed of border piper/singer Elias Alexander, guitarist/singer Eamon Sefton, and fiddler/singer Kathleen Parks, the group celebrates the continued vibrancy of the Irish and Scottish musical traditions through youthful, passionate arrangements of songs and tunes, including some original compositions within the style. Traditional music at the peak of exuberance!
