Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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 avail- able 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 Award­win­ning 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.
