    Join Eva Kor and award winning film-maker Ted Green for a special screening of Eva, a story of a remarkable journey: from the Josef Mengele experiments at Auschwitz, through years of anger and anguish, to starting the largest manhunt in history and, later, a global movement of peace and forgiveness.

    Fighting off time and failing health, this 4 foot 9 inch, 83-year-old woman from Terre Haute travels the world to promote what her extraordinary life has taught: peace, humanity and healing.
    The JCC is honored to present this outstanding film that premiered at Clowes Hall of the Butler Arts Center on April 5.

    Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner, “Eva” includes on-camera appearances from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former NBA great Ray Allen, TV and movie star Elliott Gould and many others who reveal touching accounts of Eva’s impact on their own lives. This special screening is a partnership Ted Green Films and WFYI.

    Sponsors: WFYI and Ted Green Films

  • Show Up! Civic Saturday - 7/28

    What is Civic Saturday? Civic Saturdays are meant to help us practice being together as citizens; that is, as those willing to show up in public life together. Civic Saturday is a civic analogue to a faith gathering. Friends and strangers congregate in a common place to nurture a spirit of shared purpose, wrestle with moral questions regarding what it means to be an American, and develop a sense of civic character. On Civic Saturdays, we will gather around America’s civic religion and our sacred creed of liberty, equality, and self-government . . . and all the messiness and moral questioning that brings.

    These gatherings are not about (nor aim to replace!) traditional religious practices. Nor are they about partisan politics. Rather, at Civic Saturday, we will sing together, listen to poetry, read civic scripture (great and provocative American texts), hear a civic sermon, and, above all else, be in fellowship with one another. We will support and uplift one another to maintain the energy needed to show up in public life.

    Spirit & Place will host at least two Civic Saturdays in 2018 with the Indianapolis Public Library as our venue partner. Both will be from 10:30 to 11:30am with the first on Saturday, April 28 at the Glendale Library and the second on Saturday, July 28 at Central Library.
