Media Matters: Fusion Global Gives Ted Baehr Mordechai in Media Award

 

Family and child advocate Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®:  The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment, received the Mordechai in Media Award from Fusion Global at its 2nd Annual Purim Holiday event, Esther’s Ball: A Midnight Masquerade.

 

 

The event celebrating the Purim holiday was held Saturday at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

 

The biblical story of Purim is found in the Book of Esther. This special day commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from the wicked vizier, Haman’s, plot to annihilate all the Jews. In the Bible, Mordechai, Esther’s uncle, took bold action to save the Jewish people and push his niece into finding her destiny.

 

In presenting the award to Dr. Baehr, Rabbi Jason Sobel, director of Fusion Global, said:

 

“Just as we commemorate Mordechai’s ability to impact cultural transformation in his day, this year we would like to take this opportunity to honor you as a modern day Mordechai for your significant impact on Hollywood and the Jewish Community over the last 30 years. Your work in the film industry instilling faith and values in media, transforming current culture from the inside out makes you a perfect recipient of Fusion Global’s Mordechai in Media Award.”

 

The mission of Fusion Global (http://fusionglobal.org) is to unite Jews and Gentiles in Messiah to ignite cultural transformation by joining media, marketplace, and ministry. Fusion Global helps Jews and Gentiles understand and participate in Jewish holidays, fostering a deeper appreciation of Yeshua (Jesus) and His teachings.
