Mon, March 16 - 2:00 - “The Women’s Balcony” (2016) - Poignant Israeli film of a Jerusalem community; a new rabbi with a different hashkafa - a more stringent outlook - makes rulings which divide husbands and wives. The result is a touching movie of humor, sadness and very human reactions with endearing characters. LOVED BY OUR AUDIENCE! (Hebrew/English subtitles- 1½ hrs)
Sponsored by Greta Golden in loving memory of her brother, Eliyahu Feivish ben Miriam Rivka and Shmuel Abba Edelstein, killed in an IDF training exercise
Refreshments after the film provided by Greta Golden in loving memory of her brother
Tues, March 17 - 2:00 - By popular demand - “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.
