What is Jewish Film Nights at the J?
Jewish Film Nights at the J brings you 8 thought-provoking, entertaining, and educational films. There will be one film shown on one night each month. Each film will have a brief introduction and opportunity to stay after for discussion. Themes are varied: Drama, History, Comedy, Documentary, Contemporary. Our committee scours the film universe to bring you the best available. All have a Jewish connection. We invite everyone in the community to enjoy these free nights at the JCC.
OPENING FILM: 93QUEEN
93Queen follows Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the “boys club” in her Hasidic community by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in NYC.
THE LAST SUIT
An 88-year-old Jewish tailor named Abraham embarks on a long journey to try and find the man who saved him from certain death during the Holocaust.
A BAG OF MARBLES
As the German army occupies Paris in 1941, Roman Joffo, a Jewish barber, realizes his family is in danger of detention and worse. Planning their escape to the "free zone" in southern France, he sends his youngest sons on the perilous trip by themselves. In French and Yiddish with subtitles.
Save the date for all of our upcoming Jewish Film Nights at the J. Stay tuned for film details.
