“Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas”: Film & Panel Discussion
Saturday, December 11, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

“DREAMING OF A JEWISH CHRISTMAS” film night followed by an upbeat and humorous clergy panel discussion led by Rabbi Riqi Kosovske, Rev. Averill Blackburn of FCC, and local multi-faith clergy.  We will start with havdalah to end Shabbat. Held indoors in the BA sanctuary, with masks, ages 12+ must be vaccinated. All ages welcome!

About the film: 
Directed by Oscar-nominated director, Larry Weinstein, “Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas” is the offbeat, irreverent documentary that tells the story of a group of Jewish songwriters, including Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, Jay Livingston, Ray Evans, Gloria Shayne Baker and Johnny Marks, who wrote the soundtrack to the world’s most musical holiday. It’s an amazing look at the 20th century North American immigrant experience and the extraordinary outburst of musical energy from the children of those immigrants.
