Israeli Film Series


A three-part exploration of Israeli cinema and culture led by Israeli congregant Orly Dotan. Films and film clips will be watched as catalysts to conversations about elements of contemporary Israeli society.

Dates: 12/1, 2/2, 3/23

This year’s theme for our series is dealing with complicated issues in Israel, seen through the lens of individual stories.

Our third movie, The Matchmaker, currently scheduled for 3/23/19  will show life post-holocaust.

How were Holocaust survivors treated in Israel? How did this survivor group (several hundred thousand) integrate into society? The discussion in tomorrow night’s Israeli Film Series, will touch on these questions. The movie is NOT a Holocaust movie; rather, it’s a bittersweet, funny and moving coming of age story that takes place in Israel in the last 60s.
BYOB. 7:00 shmooze; 7:30 lecture followed by the screening of The Matchmaker.

Hope to see you there!
