Event Navigation

Who says movies can’t teach Torah? And we’re not just talking ‘The 10 Commandments’! Join Rabbi Molly and filmmaker/cinema student Noah Weisel as we break down the Midrash hidden in Hollywood films, both classic and forgotten. First off we’ll learn about Jewish purification through the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg ghost story, ‘Poltergeist’ (PG). Screenings will be followed by a talk and discussion. A light dinner will be provided. Registration is required.
