Season 2020-21 – A Virtual Experience!

18th Annual Patron Party

An all-new virtual event—two houses filled with exquisite art, with seven-time Emmy Award-winning interviewer Roy Firestone as the evening’s emcee. All patrons will receive a fabulous gift basket filled with wonderful treats delivered to their homes to enjoy while participating in the live stream event. Plus, a second event: as soon as we get the all-clear from the CDC, you will receive an invitation to tour both homes at an additional open house, featuring live music and the chance to mingle together in person.

Mr. Rakowski

Two-part virtual event. On December 8, 2020, you will receive an email with a link to the movie, Mr. Rakowski, which you can watch on your preferred device. This inspirational documentary highlights a difficult relationship between a Holocaust survivor and his son and how love and healing prevail. You will also receive a link for a live Q&A session on December 15, hosted by Roy Firestone, featuring Richie Rakowski (one of the movie’s protagonists) and movie director Jan Diederen.

The Clergy Boys

A multimedia production at the Palm Springs Air Museum Drive-in, featuring The Clergy Boys (like those guys from Jersey). The show will include cantorial pieces as well as Broadway, opera, and secular music from the 60s and 70s. The evening is guaranteed to entertain you and make you stomp your feet to the beat. There will be social distancing and custom snacks. We will be honoring Elaine and Jerry Morgan with the 2021 JFS Humanitarian Award. If you are unable to attend in person you will have the opportunity to stream the live event.
