There Are Jews Here- Film Monday July 31st
There are Jews Here is the story of America’s disappearing Jewish communities. Over 1 million American Jews live in once thriving small towns that have seen better days. Exploring themes of faith and community the film is an intimate look into what Jews are doing to keep their communities alive or ensure their legacies are not lost. The film takes you to Laredo Texas, Butte Montana, Latrobe Pennsylvania and Dothan Alabama where you are sure to be surprised by the people you meet who are doing their part to keep the Jewish spirit alive. The film is both a celebration of tenacity and a cautionary tale; a warning that synagogues, cemeteries and sacred possessions could vanish. This film transcends religion and is a deeply human exploration of age old-old universal questions of faith and identity.
Doors open at 6PM for socialization and beverages, screening of film at 6:30PM and discussion after the film at 8PM. We are most fortunate that Nancy Oyer, of Butte Montana who is featured in the film will be joining us. The film is open to the public, no cost, but donations greatly appreciated.
