But it was Dr. Ruth Westheimer who got the biggest laughs. Her arm in a stylish sling due to a broken wrist and shoulder, the Jewish sex ma- ven cracked a sex joke or two at the benefit, according to Page Six, the New York Post's gossip page. "I tripped,"she said."I didn't engage in sex, but I was think- ing about it and I fell." Making calls on the trading floor, Dr. Ruth promised good sex for life to anyone who got on the phone with her to buy or sell for charity. "Can you call my wife?" one trader answered. No news on how it's going for that guy, but good news for the charity--the event raised $12 million. Dad delays Winehouse statue unveiling Londoners looking for- ward to the debut of a life-size statue of Amy Winehouse are going to have to wait a bit longer. Plans to unveil the bronze rendition of the late singer in Camden, north London, this month have been put on hold by her father, Mitch Winehouse, who apparently didn't like artist Scott Eaton's final design. The news comes by way of Amy's ex, Reg Traviss. "He doesn't want anything to go up that he's not com- pletely satisfied with," Traviss told the British newspaper Mail on Sunday. A new unveiling date has not yet been set. Natalie Portman wants to be a French citizen Natalie Portman is dying to become a citizen of France-- or at least that's how everyone Dr. Ruth Westheimer participates in the Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day 2013 in New York. is deconstructing a comment she made in the French maga- zine Madame Figaro. "I don't have the French nationality, but I would love to get it. But I don't know if it's possible because I already have an American and an Israeli passport," said the ac- tress and wife of Frenchman Benjamin Millepied. "Perhaps I should add an'h' to my name to make it sound more French [Nathalie]?" The Portman-Millepieds are planning to move to Paris next year.

Oldest Jewish women's religious organization marks New York, NY--- Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) 49 th Assembly and centennial celebration will take place Dec. 11-15, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel and San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. It will be the first time since its biennial conference began in 1913, registration will be open to any individual who wants to learn, celebrate, and worship with the Reform Jewish com- munity. The main WRJ Centennial celebration will be Saturday night when WRJ receives the URJ Eisendrath Award, the highest honor bestowed by the Reform Movement, and presents the WRJ Dr. Jane Evans: Pursuit of Justice Award (given to a woman of strength and action) to Anat Hoffman, executive director of the Israel Religious Action Center and chairwoman of Women of the Wall. "ThisAssembly culminates a year-long celebration of WRJ's Centennial, which has been guided by the motto, 'Inspired by the past, com- mitted to the future'," said WRJ Executive Director Rabbi Maria J. Feldman. "During the concurrent Assembly and Biennial conferences, we look forward to having the entire Jewish community join us to learn more about WRJ's storied accomplishments and lay the foundation for WRJ's next 100 years and beyond." The WRJ Assembly will be held concurrently with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ)'s Biennial, ensuring that the more than 5,000 at- tendees of both conferences combined will study, worship, learn, network, and celebrate WRJ's Centennial anniversary together. Registration for the con- vention includes options for the public, WRJ-affiliated sisterhood members, rabbis, young adults, and active mili- tary for the entire conference or for specific days or events, such as Shabbat. Other highlights of the 2013 WRJ Assembly will include educational work- shops and learning ses- sions, forums, and speakers, including Ruth Calderon, Member of the Knesset; Jay Feinberg, founder and CEO of the Gift of Life Bone Mar- row Foundation; Rabbi David Ellenson, retiring president of Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR); and Ruth Mess- inger, president of American Jewish World Service (AJWS). WRJ will also install its new board of directors during the Assembly. New to the Assembly this year are late-night activi- ties in San Diego's Gaslamp District, a Kikar Biennial (a "town square" with informal learning spaces, the WRJ Centennial exhibit, and places to socialize) and a Shabbat "lunch and learn" session with noted authors Maggie Anton, Anita Diamant, and Zoe Klein.
