I am pleased to announce the next Movie Matinee at Beit Knesset Hanassi. On Tuesday, February 20, we will present GI JEWS.

This award-winning documentary tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish American men and women who served in World War II. Jewish veterans share their experiences in the two wars they fought—for America and for Jews everywhere.

Through the eyes of the servicemen and women, the film brings to life the story of Jews in World War II as active participants in the fight against Hitler, bigotry and intolerance.

Jewish Americans fought on two fronts: for America and for Jews worldwide. Like all Americans, they fought against fascism. But they also fought a more personal fight—to save their brethren in Europe. In the midst of it all, they battled anti-Semitism within the ranks of the U.S. military, facing slurs and violence from their fellow servicemen.

Included among the numerous Jewish veterans who tell their stories are Henry Kissinger, Carl Reiner, Robert Morgenthau and Mel Brooks.

This is a very special film!

The Movie Matinee is at 2:00. The movie is in English and also has English subtitles. The film is 1½ hours in length. In addition, there will be a brief introduction of the film, a short talk and discussion after the screening and an essay about the movie provided to all attendees.

There will be refreshments. No reservations are required. Beit Knesset Hanassi is located at 24 Ussishkin Street. The admission is 20 shekels for members of the shul and 30 shekels for non-members.
