This month, the speaker will be Rabbi Jeff Lipschultz from Beth Judah, Wildwood. After the discussion, we will watch the documentary film, The Yiddish Cinema.

Nourished by Yiddish literature and theater, Yiddish film production in Eastern Europe and the United States flourished between the two world wars. The film, Yiddish Cinema traces the history of the genre through interviews, archival photographs and film clips of many of the NCJF’s Yiddish feature films. In addition, the film discusses the reasons for the decline of Yiddish cinema, including the Holocaust, the Stalinist suppression of Jewish culture in the Soviet Union, and America’s demands for assimilation among its new immigrants.

Brunch & Learn Events are open to the entire community and are made possible by a generous donation by Marc Neumann, ChFc.
