5:30p: Kosher Deli Meal in The Attic

February 10, 2013 - Nicky’s Family (3:30p)  & Je t’aime I Love You Terminal (7p)

Nicky’s Family is a spellbinding documentary from the International EMMY AWARD winning film director Matej Minac.  In 1939, Sir Nicholas Winton personally and by his own initiative rescued 669 children from a Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia.   Winton, who is now 102 years old, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than 50 years.  Sponsored by Penn State Jewish Studies Program

Je t’aime I Love You Terminal begins with following Ben, who is traveling from Israel to New York to marry his girlfriend but misses his connection in Prague. There he meets Emma, an attractive free spirited girl. During the next 24 hours a friendship develops between the two and they find themselves reconsidering their original travel plans and re-evaluating their lives and relationships.  Sponsored by The Krentzman Family and Mark Jay Tygel. 

February 24, 2013 – Footnote (3:30p) & From The Black You Make Color (7p)

Footnote tells the story of Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik, father and son, as well as rival eccentric professors in the Talmud Department of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Uriel has an obsessive dependency on the acceptance and praise that the establishment provides, while his father is a stubborn traditionalist with an intense loathing for what the establishment stands for. However, beneath his disapproval lies a desperate hope for some kind of appreciation. When both men learn that Eliezer will be commended (mistakenly) for his work, their already complex relationship reaches a new peak that brings these two to a final, bitter confrontation.  Sponsored by Eileen Leibowitz in memory of Herschel Leibowitz

From The Black You Make Color is a new film by Judy Maltz and Richie Sherman dealing with women in an Israeli beauty school who find a common language to communicate and share their experiences to help and support one another.  Each woman brings an incredibly unique and diverse life story to their new environment: two are new immigrants, one from Ethiopia and one from Russia, two are foreigners, who struggle as outsiders in a very close-knit society; two are breast cancer survivors, who support each other through their illnesses; and two have lost their husbands under tragic circumstances.  Sponsored by Barbara Marder and Susan and David Werner
