Active Yoga ~'~ Loving Hands Yoga
6:15 PM - 7:15 PM
Active Yoga – This is a moderate-intensity class, perfect for those with previous yoga experience. In this class we gradually increase our heart rate, flow aerobically through various poses, and work on developing strength, flexibility, balance, and stamina. We focus on the yoga principles of alignment, connecting our breath with our movement, and practicing present-moment awareness. The level of challenge is designed around the students’ desires and abilities.

Class Fees
*** Students pay for 9 classes ($135) and pay as they go for the remaining classes in the session ($15 per class). New clients: Your first class is free!

*** Single drop-in class: $15 (For those who want to try it out before signing up for a session. Please call for space availability before coming to a class)

The Whole Megillah - in an Ice Cream Factory! (Purim at Mitchell's)
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Beth El –The Heights Synagogue will hold its Purim evening service and Megillah reading at Mitchell’s Ice Cream Factory, 1867 West 25th Street in Ohio City, on Wednesday night February 28. The service starts at 7:00 pm.

Why? (1) Historically, Jews seem to travel for many of our holidays: think of Passover and Sukkot — so why not? (2) More fun! It’s amazing to see an ice cream factory, and they have glass walls so you can see the whole thing in operation. (3) Ice cream! Part of the deal here is that everybody gets a free scoop of Mitchell’s ice cream, in addition to our own hamentaschen, which we will bring in. Choice of 5 kosher flavors. (4) Outreach. This is a longshot of course, but there are unaffiliated young Jews living in the area; so why not make ourselves known to them.

Free parking is available at the West Side Market parking lot and on streets in the area. Questions? Call the synagogue at 216-320-9667 or email info@bethelheights.org.

As usual, we will read the WHOLE MEGILLAH! Costumes are welcomed but not required. This event is free and open to the public.

The Effect: Preview Performance
7:30 PM - 9:45 PM
Dobama Theatre presents the Midwest premiere of THE EFFECT by Lucy Prebble, directed by Laley Lippard

Winner of the 2012 UK Critics' Circle Award for Best Play

Connie and Tristan are volunteers in a clinical drug trial, but when they begin a sudden and illicit romance, they must ask themselves: is theirs a palpable chemistry—or is it a side effect of the new antidepressant being tested? As their relationship forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work, the story begins to unwind in a script that plays like a thriller.THE EFFECT is a steamy and scintillating drama filled with humor, intelligence, and

suspense.

THE EFFECT features Olivia Scicolone, Derdriu Ring*, Ananias J. Dixon, and Joel Hammer*.

*members of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States

The play runs 135 minutes, including a 15 minute intermission.
