No doubt, he’ll have more to say than, "Yada, yada, yada."
The Jewish National Fund of Canada, Manitoba/Saskatchewan Region, announced Friday that Jason Alexander — best known to TV fans as Seinfeld sidekick George Costanza — will headline this year’s Negev Gala honouring the Arab Jewish Dialogue.
The gala takes place Tuesday, June 4 at the Centennial Concert Hall. Tickets range from $50 (student/child) to $280, and are available from the JNF office (204-947-0207).
In addition to his nine-season stint on Seinfeld (1989-98), which earned him six supporting-actor Emmy nominations, Alexander has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows and is a Tony Award-winning Broadway stage performer. He is also the spokesman for One Voice, a grassroots organization of Israelis and Palestinians committed to a peaceful, two-state solution in the Middle East.
