Doug Passon: Another Good Guy Award

DougPassonOur heartfelt thanks go out to Doug Passon, President and Creative Director of D Major Films, for his kindness and generosity during the “So Is Life” performance at the URJ Biennial in Orlando last week.

Doug is responsible for producing the documentary, “Road to Eden,” which follows singer-songwriter Dan Nichols as he and his band took to the road in October 2011, touring the deep south throughout the Jewish festival of Sukkot. As is written on the documentary’s website: “Road to Eden encapsulates Sukkot’s profound, and little understood message: We are all traveling together on a road to a better future, a time when the Earth can become a true Eden for all humankind. Sukkot reminds us that the time is now, and our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to get up, get out, and make it happen.”

Road2EdenAt the “So Is Life” performance, Doug got up, got out, and made it happen. He turned to me and said, “I want to donate the income from everything I sell here this afternoon.” So he and I spent the next two hours missing most of the concert as we shmoozed with folks who wandered over to us, hawked our goods, and then he gave every penny he’d earned to The Jonah Maccabee Foundation.

So thank you, Doug. You are hereby inducted into the Order of Stalwart Friends of The Jonah Maccabee Foundation. And we love you for it!
