lots of weddings and anniversaries.
But this June is special for me. I am in a new, very funny comedy film coming out on June 5th called “Larry Gaye – Renegade Male Flight Attendant”. I actually play the part of a rabbi (a big stretch for me) who is ordering a Kosher meal on a flight.
This looks almost like a follow-up to “Airplane” and might just get that “cult” fan base.
The cast is amazing and includes Mark Feuerstein of the TV show “Royal Pains”, who produced and stars, Stanley Tucci, Marcia Gay Hardin, Patrick Warburton, Taye Diggs, Henry Winkler, Molly Shannon, Jason Alexander and yours truly, as “the rabbi” – oy!
The filming was done on a sound stage where all they have are interiors of planes and all that goes into a plane. It’s really amazing how it looks like we are flying, but, that’s all Hollywood trickery.
Speaking of “trickery”, on June 7th we have a wonderful magician, Shawn McMaster of the Magic Castle, who will be mesmerizing us at our “Forever Tonight” – a celebration of love for Joyce and Lee Shulman. We also have singing sensation, Rebecca Somberg, comedian, Steve Mittleman and lots of surprises. I am honored to be your master of ceremonies for the evening. Joyce and Lee are such wonderful people and they deserve every accolade that they get. We, at Temple Beth Ami, are so lucky to have them in our congregation. Let’s show them how much we appreciate them. I hope to see all of you there!
Have a great summer!
