This week is SHTETL WEEK:

Mon, Aug 12 - 2:00 - Main Hall - A YIDDISH WORLD REMEMBERED (2002) - First time showing - Superb, award-winning documentary on the world that is no more - Jewish life in the Pale of Settlement. Individuals born in "Yiddish Land" and historians describe life in the shtetls - Yiddishkeit, the home, food, music, clothing, cheder, the anti-Semitism and the pograms, the Zionists and the Bundists, the roots of Chasidism and more. Fascinating film clips and photos. Informative and deeply moving. (1 hr)

Sponsored by Renni Levine in loving memory of her Yiddish speaking family

Tues, Aug 13 - 2:00 - Main Hall - ECHOES THAT REMAIN (1991) - One of our favorites! Beautiful documentary on the shtetl life of Eastern Europe. Rich, poignant chronicle of that lost world told in folk tales and parables. Rare photos and film from the era and footage from these locations today. The shtetl - her people, customs and bubbe meises - a loving portrait. (1 hr)

Sponsored by Wendy and Nachum Dickstein in appreciation of the JewishVideo program

Wed, Aug 14 - 2:00 - Main Hall - FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (1971) - Return to Anatevka where Tevye and Golde are marrying off their daughters with and without help from Yente the matchmaker. Sholom Aleichem's Yiddish tales magically and musically come to life. Listen to Tevye's wisdom as he accepts what life gives him with pain, humor and faith in Hashem. Israel’s Topol as Tevye and Molly Picon as Yente. A classic, nominated for 8 Academy Awards. Come see "Fiddler" again for the first time. (English/English subtitles - 3 hrs/intermission with refreshments courtesy of Sarah Fishman)

Sponsored by Sarah Fishman in gratitude for her many family smachot here and in the United States
