PANEL DISCUSSION: COLLIDING DREAMS - April 28 at 7pm (on zoom)

"To be a Zionist it is not necessary to be mad," said Chaim Weismann, Israel's first president, "but it helps." This feature length documentary explores the dream of a Jewish homeland and its impact on Jews and Arabs over 150 years.


Holocaust survivors gather each summer at an idyllic hideaway in the Catskills where they savor tightly bonded relations, find new love, and celebrate their survival. Several believe they survived through God's love or because they were poor and knew better than the rich how to survive; others are convinced dumb luck saved them. The film grew out of a series of articles by New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs.

THE BRAID: WHAT DO I DO WITH ALL THIS HERITAGE - June 6 at 7pm (Live on zoom)

Join the Braid for a whimsical and thought-provoking journey into the lives of Asian Jews as they reveal their true stories of struggle and triumph, holding two age-old traditions in their heart.
