The Yahrzheit of Harvey Milk, z”l

Posted by Oyster on November 26, 2008

harvey_milk_saintI didn’t realize this until today, but the famed gay martyr of San Francisco, Supervisor Harvey Milk, was Jewish. In fact, the SF Jewish Federation is co-sponsoring a pre-screening (follow link for trailer) of the greatly anticipated film “Milk” starring fellow Bay Area dudes Sean Penn & James Franco in the lead role. I’ll definitely be there. Here’s the film description:

Milk and More! WE ARE SOLD OUT!

Monday, December 1, 2008, 6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
Sundance Kabuki Cinemas, 1881 Post Street, at Fillmore, San Francisco (map)
In light of the disappointing passage of Proposition 8, The Jewish Community Federation invites you to a special event which includes a private screening of Milk, followed by a no-host reception.
Admission: Tickets are no longer available.
Sponsored by: Business Leadership Council (BLC), San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, Congregation Sha’ar Zahav, AWJS-AVODAH Partnership, American Jewish World Service, Young Adults Division, LGBT Alliance.
Contact: LGBT Alliance, 415.369.2863, lgbt@sfjcf.org

With the popularity of this film screening with a panel and a reception from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m. we ask you to consider buying tickets for the 7:40 p.m. Milk show time in auditorium one and joining us for the post-film reception on level three after your show.

Tickets for the 7:40 p.m. show on December 1 can be purchased directly in advance and online here. Please call Sundance Kabuki for questions or more information at 415.593.3473.

Here’s some more links from the blogosphere, so we can learn more about this tragedy together:

  1. […] few Jewish blog sites I’ve seen mention the film all have this “ah ha” moment where the writer realizes that they never knew […]

    What did you think he was, just take a look at the beak? Also many jews are gay. Why else would they make a movie about him, because he was a jew. the media likes to promote them. He was worthless.

    Wow, a person without the guts to identify themselves is dispensing out proclamations of who is worthless or not. Kettle, meet pot.

    Oh I forgot; those Jewish fruits control the media (and everything else) thanks for reminding me, i’d almost forgotten about the world Jewish conspiracy. Milk had more worth in his little finger than our anonymous friend has in his total body
