Jeff Goldblum Inside An
Elevator With Israeli Muzak

Story and Photos by Tim Boxer

EFFREY TAMBOUR of Broadway’s Glengarry Glen Ross introduced the guest of honor at the Joseph Papp Children’s Humanitarian Fund dinner: “He was born in Pittsburgh as Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum and started acting under the name Lynn Goldblum. Realizing that people were confused, even his friends, about his gender, he dropped Lynn , shortened his name and became Jeff Goldblum,” now starring on Broadway in The Pillowman.

The dinner, sponsored by Tzivos Hashem to aid homeless children in Ukraine, was at the newly opened Jewish Children’s Museum in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Jerry Cutler came in from Los Angeles to produce the event.

Executive director Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjaminson escorted Goldblum and friends on a tour of the six-story high-tech facility.

They got into a slow moving elevator, which afforded folksinger Ron Eliran a sterling opportunity to entertain a captive audience with his Israeli repertoire.
