Ingrid Betancourt won several awards, including the Audience Award from the SlamDance Festival and the Orson Welles
Award for Best First Film at the Tiburon International Film Festival, and was also a special mention for the Amnesty Inter-
national DOEN Award, which celebrates films about human rights issues. In Spanish with English subtitles, the film runs
76 minutes.
Ingrid Betancourt will appear in conjunction with the screening to tell her story about being kidnapped by the guerilla
Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and answer audience questions. A 2002
Colombian presidential nominee, Betancourt established her reputation by fighting against
political corruption and made many enemies, even as she won seats in the House of Repre-
sentatives and the Senate in 1994 and 1998. Her mother Yolanda Pulecio, also a political
activist and former congresswoman in Colombia, assisted with her campaigns. Betancourt’s
kidnapping on the eve of the February 2002 election sparked international protests; she
remained in captivity for six-and-a-half years, until a Colombian security force rescued her
and fourteen other captives in July 2008. Betancourt received numerous honors following
her release, including France’s National Order of the Legion of Honour and Spain’s Prince
of Asturias Award of Concord. Previously the author of Until Death Do Us Part: My Struggle
to Reclaim Colombia, the activist’s new memoir about her experience, titled Even Silence
Has an End: My Six Years of Captivity in the Colombian Jungle, will be released on Septem-
ber 21. Betancourt continues to campaign for the freedom of other hostages held by FARC.
WHYY’s Elisabeth Perez-Luna will moderate the discussion with Ingrid Betancourt fol-
lowing the screening. A journalist and producer, Perez-Luna has been at WHYY since 1999
as a producer of national programs. Currently she is the Executive Producer of Audio Con-
tent in the News and Information Department, where she
produces and designs national and local programs for radio
and web. A regular contributor to NPR’s Morning Edition,
Weekend Edition, and All Things Considered, Perez-Luna has
run WHYY’s weekly radio news magazines for the past 29
years and developed several independent programs and
series. In addition to her work at WHYY, she has designed,
collected, and produced sound content for four national
museums and interpretive centers, including The African
American History Museum in Detroit, Michigan, and The
Civil War Interpretive Center in Richmond, Virginia.
This event is co-presented by First Person Arts, an orga-
nization which transforms the drama of real life into mem-
oir and documentary art to foster appreciation for our unique
and shared experience. Founded in 2000, the organization
supports the development of new memoir and documentary
work and creates opportunities for it to be seen and appre-
ciated. Visit www.firstpersonarts.org for information.
Tickets for the screening and discussion are $10 for General
Admission and $8 for Bryn Mawr Film Institute and First
Person Arts Members. Purchase tickets online at www.Bryn-
MawrFilm.org or visit Bryn Mawr Film Institute’s Box Office.

P
atients who aren’t well enough to return home after a
hospital stay can recover more fully in the Transitional
Care Program, a nonsectarian program of the Madlyn and
Leonard Abramson Center for Jewish Life.
Transitional care bridges the gap between a hospital stay
and home with short-term nursing, medical and rehabilita-
tive care. In the Abramson Center’s program, patients receive
the services of a multi-disciplinary care team, which includes
a medical director board-certified in Internal Medicine who
directs all rehabilitative care; a physiatrist board-certified
in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation; registered nurses
and nurse practitioners; certified nursing assistants; physi-
cal, occupational, and speech therapists; social workers;
dietitians; chaplains; a full-time program administrator; and
a quality improvement officer.
The care team develops a tailored care plan to meet each
patient’s individual needs. Frequent assessments and reviews
of the treatment plan are done throughout the patient’s stay.
“Our team approach involves patients and their families,
along with referring physicians, in order to ensure patients’
successful return to their own homes,” says Program Director
Paul Goldenberg. “Patients and their families are very pleased
with our individualized approach to care.”
Services of the program include: Therapy available up to 7 days a week; Post-orthopedic surgery care; Physical, occu-
pational and speech therapy; Pain management; Wound care; Advanced intravenous ther-
apy; Nutrition management; Wheelchair or gurney mobility; Head or spinal cord injury
care; Respiratory care; Frequent assessments and treatment reviews; Recreational and
therapeutic activities; Patient and family education; Case management; Discharge planning.
The Transitional Care Program is located on the campus of the Abramson Center for
Jewish Life in a designated center consisting of 27 private rooms, state-of-the-art rehabili-
tation gym, therapy kitchen, living room and dining area, all with beautiful views of out-
door gardens. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, telephone, wireless Internet access, emer-
gency call system, bathing suite, laundry service, and beauty/barber services. The Abram-
son Center is located in Horsham Township, Montgomery County, about 30 minutes from
Center City, the Main Line, Lower Bucks County and the northern suburbs of Montgomery
County, and provides free parking.

BETWEEN HOSPI TAL STAY AND HOME
a year to schedule and interview her subjects, most of whom speak to audiences about their
Holocaust experiences an average of 40 to 50 times a year. Instead of hitting the shore or rol-
licking with friends over her last summer before college, Friedman devoted nearly 150 hours to
distill five-and-a-half hours of raw footage into a seamless 30 minutes.
“The film took on a life of its own. I had to complete it for all the others involved,” says
Friedman, a Great Valley High School graduate now studying communications and pre-law at
Temple University. “These stories need to be told before there are no survivors left.”
Her efforts paid off. Two days before the film’s debut, the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsyl-
vania (GSEP) Gold Award Committee resoundingly approved Friedman’s project, paving the
way for her to join other accomplished Girl Scouts from the Council region at next spring’s
awards ceremony. Committee members recommended that Friedman submit her project in
consideration for the Girl Scouts of the USA’s Young Women of Distinction, which recognizes
10 exemplary Gold Award honorees at its National Council Session each year.
“Using real voices, faces, and emotion, Darragh brought a dark history lesson to life in ways
that are often lost in a traditional classroom or textbook,” marvels Vicki Smith, an active GSEP
volunteer and Committee member. “Darrah impressed us from the beginning with her commit-
ment and planning, and she epitomizes a Girl Scout Gold Awardee.”
Fewer than 6 percent of Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award. Those who do are also recognized
by the President and U.S. Congress, the U.S. Armed Services, state legislatures, and the Ameri-
can Legion. A growing number of colleges and universities now recognize the achievements
and leadership capabilities of Girl Scout Gold Awardees through scholarship programs.
Indeed, Friedman’s 11-year tenure as a Girl Scout was a significant asset at least twice during
her project. One initially-reluctant interviewee agreed to participate, and a sponsor of the film
relaxed a guideline for its support—both in large part, she says, “because I’m a Girl Scout.”
Though future screenings have not been scheduled, Friedman is exploring several avenues
through which she might share the documentary, including showings at film festivals, touring
Jewish community centers and schools, sharing a reel with the History and Discovery channels,
and expanding the series to include other “Voices of History” subjects, such as Vietnam War
veterans. Licensing and finances will play a role in her decisions.
Marc Adelman, an educator at the Holocaust Awareness Museum in Northeast Philadelphia,
said his organization has offered support if she decides to build upon the film. After the
screening, he made an impromptu acknowledgement of three generations: “the young victims
of the Holocaust who were forced to be courageous by living through it; the same generation
who today choose to be courageous by re-telling their stories; and the courageous generation
of young people committed to Holocaust and genocide awareness—of which Darragh is a
remarkable example.”

EDITOR’S NOTES: Before being reunited with his birthparents, Kurt Herman was cared for
by a family with several children in Allentown; the late famed-photographer Herman Leonard
was among the family’s siblings. Manya Frydman Perel survived seven concentration camps,
including Auschwitz, Plaszow (Schindler’s List), Ravensbrück, Rechlin, and Gundelsdorf;
Friedman dedicated the film to Bella Frydman, Perel’s five-year old niece who perished
in the gas chambers (Bella’s image is featured on the screen in the background of the photo-
graph). Michael Herskovitz survived Auschwitz, Mauthausen and Gunskirchen.

T
his High Holiday season
is a special one in the life
of Ohev Shalom’s sanctuary
and community. As our nation
marks the 20th anniversary
of the passage of the Americans
With Disabilities Act, the
synagogue’s bimah, a raised
platform with a reading desk
from which the Torah and
Haf_arah (a reading from the
prophets) are read will be
fully accessible. Beginning
on Rosh Hashana, the Jewish
New Year, for the first time
in the building’s 45-year his-
tory, every congregant and
visitor will have the oppor-
tunity to go up to the bimah
regardless of their ability to
walk or navigate stairs.
Most congregants accept the
honor of “going up” to the
bimah on numerous occasions,
never questioning their abili-
ty to do so physically. How-
ever for some, the steps and
height made it difficult and
sometimes impossible to re-
ceive the meaningful honor
of having an Aliyah. Now
thanks to Ohev’s generous
congregation, the sanctuary has a modern wheelchair lift to the bimah, skillfully encased in
a new cabinet designed to match the existing woodwork. Cantor Steven Friedrich says,
“Having our bimah be accessible for everyone, regardless of physical condition, makes
our religious services more meaningful for all in attendance.” Bill Gross, previously of
Media’s B. Gross Men’s Store remarks, “Actually it was embarrassing to hobble up the stairs,
even though that was many years ago. Now it will be wonderful being able to go up in my
chair.” His wife Lorraine adds, “It’s not just for Bill; it’s for all of our future!”
Ohev also offers fully accessible services with an Assisted Hearing System and large
print prayer books. The rest of the building is fully accessible as well, including its park-
ing spaces, reception area and restrooms. Although other congregations may have a ramp
system, the elevator at the bimah is highly unusual. According to congregant Amy Larchuk,
“Those of us with physical issues here at Ohev are so wanted as part of Jewish ritual that
the congregation gladly raised a great deal of money and put up with a large inconvenience
just for us. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the thoughtfulness of our members.”
Rabbi Jeremy Gerber, who plans to utilize the lift in various times throughout services,
echoes the feeling of the congregation at large, “We know in our communal memory, what
it means to be left out, ignored, forgotten, and marginalized. Sometimes we forget, but
making our sanctuary handicap-accessible brings it all back to the present day. We must
continue to strive, every day, to achieve equality. This project sends a strong message to
our members, our visitors, and to the wider community about what our congregation
cherishes and what we value most.”

And...Philly brought home the Gold many,
many times this summer.
Since the games were established in 1982,
they have offered a life-changing experience,
not just to the athletes themselves, but also
to their parents and coaches and the legions
of volunteers in host communities who work
hard for more than a year to plan a busy
week of events on the field and off. In every
team and individual contest, Games partici-
pants are encouraged to follow the “Rachmanus
Rule,” a credo that dictates fair play, based
on the Jewish values of mercy and compas-
sion. Teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect
for opponents are prized over winning at any
cost.
Supplementing the team and individual
sports competitions, throughout the week
there are fun and engaging social programs
that promote friendships, community service
projects that instill the Jewish values of tikkun
olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah
(social justice), and informal educational
instruction that fosters a personal connec-
tion to the state of Israel. Over the years,
participants have spoken of making new
friends and memories to last a lifetime, mo-
tivating many to return to the Games year
after year, even volunteering as delegation
heads and coaches once they are too old
to compete.
Philadelphia JCC Maccabi in 2011
If this all sounds like an experience of a
lifetime, hold on to your hats. The Games
are coming to your hometown. August 14 -
19, 2011 the JCC Maccabi Games will be
hosted by Philadelphia. The Games will be
based on the Main Line, out of the Kaiserman
JCC (the home office of Team Philadelphia).
Athletes, volunteers, sponsors will be re-
cruited from all over the 5-county Philadel-
phia area. Host families must live within a
30 minute drive to the Kaiserman JCC.
Already a part of the team, the Jewish
Exponent has generously agreed to be the
Media Sponsor for the Games. The Jewish
Federation of Greater Philadelphia has gra-
ciously pledged $50,000 towards this project.
This will be a massive community-wide event
that will involve the entire Jewish commu-
nity. Hundreds of host families and volun-
teers will need to be rallied and $1.5 million
raised. Visit www.phillymaccabi.com or
call 610-896-7770 ext. 102, bsegal@phillyjcc.com

Community on the Main Line
V
alerie Franklin and Cheryl Friedenberg, of Dresher and
Blue Bell, PA, both busy juggling family life, and the
desire to make a difference, decided to launch The Mitzvah
Bowl when they realized there was no central database in
the Philly suburbs listing mitzvah projects. The result is
www.themitzvahbowl.com, a website connecting Bar/Bat
Mitzvah students to social action projects.
High school students looking for community service hours,
Church youth groups, scouting organizations & families
searching for a way to make a difference may also benefit
from this online resource.
“Several local Rabbis and Jewish leaders have mentioned
to us that this was on their ‘to do’ lists, but they haven’t
had the time or resources to complete the task,” said Cheryl
Friedenberg, co-founder of themitzvahbowl.com.
Val Franklin, themitzvahbowl.com co-founder, describes
their motivation behind the website, “The children are look-
ing for meaningful and enriching projects, but typically the
parents are the ones digging deeper to find the perfect match
for their child. This website takes the onus off of the par-
ents and gives the children an easy way to find a perfect
match.”
Typically Bar and Bat mitzvah aged kids must complete
several mitzvoth, including an in-depth mitzvah project,
prior to B’nai mitzvah. Each synagogue compiles its own
list of mitzvah projects, some temples more detailed than
others, but themitzvahbowl.com creates a resource of data
for students based on their interests, for example, animals
or the environment, and lists organizations under categories
for easy access. By categorizing their choices, the hope is
that the students find a mitzvah project about which they
are passionate.
Not only do Friedenberg and Franklin want to give the
students many organizations to choose from, they also want
to suggest various projects for them to get involved. It’s
one thing to ask family and friends to donate money to an
organization, but it’s another to get involved with the orga-
nization with a hands-on project, which connects the stu-
dent to those who benefit from the organization. The Mitzvah
Bowl asks each organization they list to send them suggest-
ed hands-on projects beyond just fundraising.
For instance, a student enthusiastic about technology
could contact Jewish Family and Children’s Services to set
up a weekly visit in an area nursing home with residents,
teaching them how to surf the web or email.
By practicing community service, responsibility, kindness,
& good deeds, bar and bat mitzvah students will connect
to their Jewish identity and get a true taste of what it’s like
to make a difference. Meanwhile, the mitzvah moms will con-
tinue their mission of stocking the The Mitzvah Bowl web-
site.

of dance under the Artistic Direction
of Gwendolyn Bye, will feature the re-

Song of the Earth. The program in-
cludes the full company in Daniel
Maloney’s “Suite for Percussion” with
live music of Westley Rast and a new work, Dwelling by
company member Joe Cicala. “This raw, highly physical

explores the difficulty of a dissolving relationship,” states
Artistic Director Gwendolyn Bye.

based company under Artistic Direc-
tion of Martin Lofsnes, is comprised
primarily of former principal dancers
from the Martha Graham Dance Com-
pany, and is dedicated to combining
the great classics of modern dance
with cutting-edge contemporary com-
missions. The 360º Dance Company

ture of theatrical magic as two dancers,
Martin Lofsnes and Alessandra Prosperi
weave a provocative duet of attraction.

“I
t’s unbelievable, what’s going on around here!” exclaim-
ed Bobbi Wolf as she looked at the Fall 2010 line-up for
Wolf Performing Arts Center. Over 100 children signed-up
for auditions, pre-session enrollment is the highest in Wolf
PAC history, the teaching staff has more than doubled in size,
more classes are available than ever before, a huge Birthday
Party is set for the 13th, and
this is only September!
Bobbi admits when she
opened Wolf PAC in 2005 it
was a dream come true, but
she had no idea this dream
grow so big, so fast. “Of
course we hoped...we want-
ed to reach out to more chil-
dren and their families, and
let everyone feel at home here,”
said Bobbi. Wolf PAC was
home to almost 200 children
throughout this year’s Summer
of Theatre Magic and waiting
lists were in place for some
Fall classes by August.
In five years, Wolf PAC has more grown exponentially, thanks to the talented staff and
the hard-working board of directors, “and the families” added Bobbi. “We wouldn’t be
where we are without all of these families. So, Happy Birthday Wolf PAC!” Bobbi said,
smiling and pointing to two youngsters exchanging hugs in the hallway, “this is what it’s
about though, it is amazing to watch them build friendships and feel good about themselves.”
Wolf PAC welcomes the entire community to the Open House Birthday Party on Monday,
September 13 from 4:30 p.m. - 6:30.p.m. Families are welcome to meet teachers, tour the
building, take sample classes, register for Fall 2010, meet other families, and enjoy the
fabulous birthday cake. The entire evening is free. Wolf Performing Arts Center is located
at the corner of Remington and Dover Roads, in Wynnewood. For info visit www.wolfper-

Program for Active Adults with Neurological Disorders
Wolf PAC is getting ready for its Fall programs and Open
House Birthday Party September 13, after its successful
“Summer of Theatre Magic.”
“Y
oga is for everybody!” declares Georgette DuBois, as
she announces the September 15 start of her Gentle
Introduction to Yoga class at The Yoga Garden in Narberth.
This class is an opportunity to ease into yoga for those
who are brand-new beginners, have been away from yoga
for a while, or haven’t yet found a class that suits their needs.
It will include stretching, breathing, basic yoga postures, and
meditative silence in a comfortable, serene atmosphere.
“I love introducing yoga to people who may be hesitant,
wondering if it’s something they can do. Or perhaps they’ve
tried a class that was too vigorous for them, so they didn’t
have a good experience,” says Georgette. “My mission is
to make yoga accessible to people who may not be used
to moving their bodies, but who quickly discover in my
classes that they CAN do yoga and feel great doing it.”
According to the American Yoga Association, the classi-
cal techniques of yoga date back more than 5,000 years. In
ancient times, the desire for greater personal freedom, health,
long life, and heightened self-understanding gave birth to
this system of physical and mental exercise that has since
spread throughout the world. The word yoga means “to join
or yoke together,” and it brings the body and mind together
into a harmonious whole.
“Yoga is increasingly popular in our fast-paced world.”
Georgette observes. “It offers an easily learned approach to
relaxing the body and quieting the mind, which allows release
of the stress that we all experience.”
Students experience the benefits of this mind/body/spirit
practice from their very first class with Georgette, and they
keep coming back. “I have students who have been taking
my classes regularly for over a decade. It’s wonderful to see
the positive impact that the regular practice of yoga has
on their lives.”
Georgette’s Gentle Introduction to Yoga starts on Wednes-
day September 15, 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. The fee for the
4 week session is $40, and drop-ins are $15 per class. The
Yoga Garden is located at 131 N. Narberth Avenue, above
the Narberth Movie Theater.
For information about the full range of offerings at The
Yoga Garden, visit www.yogagardennarberth.com or call
610-664-2705.
To contact Georgette about her gentle classes, email
yogageorgette@gmail.com, or call 484-995-3619.

T
he Nelly Ber-
man School
of Music (NBS)
will hold a mem-
orial concert in
memory of gifted
violin student,
Chanlan Lee, on
January 23, 2009
at 7 p.m. Chanlan
Lee, age 8, pass-
ed away on Dec-
ember 19 due to
a severe case of
viral encephali-
tis. He was the
youngest schol-
arship student
at the Nelly Ber-
man School of
Music and quite
an accomplished
violinist for his
young age.
Chanlan had a
deep passion for
music that was transparent and vibrant. He was involved
in not only solo performances, but chamber groups and
intensive summer camps. His hard work paid off when he
was the youngest soloist chosen to perform on the stage
at the Kimmel Center as a platinum winner of the NBS Golden
Key Competition. In addition to his heart for playing, he was
also dedicated to the scholarship program that supplement-
ed his lesson fees. To show his appreciation, he took initia-
tive to raise funds, over $300 to be exact, by playing in his
parents’ restaurant in the Chinatown section of Philadelphia.
The January 23 concert will be held at Centennial Hall at
The Haverford School, 450 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford,
from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The event, showcasing students and
professional musicians, will commemorate Chanlan’s love
and passion for music and life. A donation of $15 per adu
and $10 per child is suggested. All proceeds will benefi
the Chanlan Lee Scholarship Program, which will provid
a scholarship to a gifted violin student, from around th
ion with adequate lessons to foster their talent.

T
he Old Academy Players,
who perform in the his-
toric theater on Indian
Queen Lane, have been per-
forming continuously for 87
years. During that time, they
have presented plays by the
likes of Shaw, Ibsen, O’Neil,
Wilde, and Miller, but they
have never performed a work
by the most pre-eminent play-
wright of all time, William
Shakespeare. All that will
change this September, when
the Players present the Bard’s
enchanting comedy of love
and fantasy, “A Midsummer
Night’s Dream.”
“The course of true love
never did run smooth,” is one
of the most famous lines of
this magical play. It certainly
describes Shakespeare’s world
of star-crossed (and criss-
crossed) lovers, quarrelling
fairies, magical flower juice, and performing workmen.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is directed by Carla Childs (of Mt. Airy). It features a
large cast that includes many fine young actors.
The play runs from September 10 through September 26. Tickets are $12. Discount
rates are available for groups of 15 or more. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8
p.m.; Sunday performances (September 19 and September 26 only) are at 2 p.m. There
will be no performance on Friday, September 17, because of the holiday of Yom Kippur.
Instead, there will be a special performance on Thursday, September 16. Parking is free.
For information and reservations, call 215-843-1109, or visit www.oldacademyplayers.org.
