‘Wine and Gratitude’ pairing; get Jewish with the Giants; and other best bets

Sip on this: Congregation Ner Shalom’s Reb Irwin Keller and Orpheus winemaker Marc Krafft are teaming up for “Perfect Pairing: Wine and Gratitude — A Jewish Pop-Up Experience” on Sunday afternoon at Orpheus Winery in Kenwood. Described as “a little study, a little winemaking,” this sounds like a great way to feed the mind and nourish the soul. For 21-and-up, of course.

2-4 p.m. Aug. 20 at Orpheus Winery, 8910 Highway 12, Kenwood. $15-$20.


The poetry of Rachel Bluwstein is music to the ears of Israeli ex-pats and East Bay residents Efi Lubliner and Rivka Amado, who’ve created a musical tribute to the late great Zionist poet. Amado, known locally for performing Ladino songs, will sing and Lubliner, long involved with the East Bay International Jewish Film Festival, will narrate Rachel’s life story in “Rachel: Israel’s National Poet.” Their show is free to the public and debuts Sunday at Temple Isaiah in Lafeyette.

4 p.m. Aug. 20 at Temple Isaiah, 945 Risa Road, Lafayette.


And finally: It’s not on the weekend, but Jewish Heritage Night with the San Francisco Giants on Monday is a best bet for sure. Besides joining fellow members of the tribe in watching the Giants battle the Brewers, you’ll get the one-of-a-kind Jewish/Giants Lou Sea Bobblehead and admission to the pregame party with Jewish food and live music.

Pre-game party from 5-7 p.m. in parking lot A at AT&T Park, S.F. Game starts at 7:15 p.m.
