Saratoga Jewish Cultural Festival

bringing community together

Open to the public - A series of films and fun, family-friendly, events:

March 24 @ 7pm - Rosenwald (film & discussion)

Saratoga Jewish Community Arts, in partnership with Skidmore Office for Jewish Student Life and Temple Sinai, and with a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York and support from the Golub Corporation, presents Rosenwald, directed by Aviva Kempner. Kempner begins by focusing her inquisitive lens on a mystifying anomaly. Who is the white man prominently framed on the wall of numerous black schools located throughout the American South? This question turns out to be the thread that unravels a historical yarn for the ages. 

Rosenwald will be shown in Davis Auditorium at Skidmore College on March 24 at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion and a dessert reception. A $5.00 donation is requested. For information or reservations, call 518-584-8730, option 2.  [email protected]

April 28 @ 7pm - Rosenwald (film & discussion)

Saratoga Jewish Community Arts, and Temple Sinai, with a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York and support from the Golub Corporation, presents Hill 24 Doesn't Answer, directed by Thorold Dickinson. Set during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the conflict that led to the creation of the state of Israel, this landmark Israeli film is among the first features from that country to draw an international audience. Four soldiers of fortune - a Palestinian, an Irishman, an American,and a Yemenite - have aligned themselves with the Jewish forces. As the group tries to maintain control of a key stronghold outside of Jerusalem, known as Hill 24, each character relates his reason for joining the fight.

Hill 24 Doesn't Answer will be shown at Temple Sinai on April 28 at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion and a dessert reception. A $5.00 donation is requested. For information or reservations, call 518-584-8730, option 2.  [email protected]
