Cantor-Plex Film Festival
Saturday, November 2 at 7:00 pm
Join Cantor Michael and Dr. Ray Feller at our 10th Annual Cantor-Plex Film Series. Our theme this year is Mikol Am V'lashon (Among Every People and Language)
Tonight's movie is The Last Suit, written and directed by Pablo Solarz
At 88, Abraham Bursztein is seeing his place in the world rapidly disappear. His kids have sold his Buenos Aires residence, set him up to move to a retirement home, and disagree on how to handle his fading health; but Abraham survived the Holocaust, made a successful life in a foreign land, and isn't about to quietly fade away. Instead, he plots a secret one-way trip to Poland, where he plans to find the Christian friend who saved him from certain death at the end of World War II, and to keep his promise to return one day.
As always, popcorn, soda and movie candy will be available, as well as craft beer (for those of age).

Abe, Jake, Mo and More: The Role of Personality Development in the Bible
We ask, "What is so-and-so like? Are they quiet, loud, weak, boisterous, aggressive? Do they teem with insight or are they impulsive?" The presupposition of the above questions is that a person has an unchanging personality which can be pinned down once and for all.
In this course we will see how Biblical characters like Abraham, Jacob, Moses and others, in fact undergo change and development. We will learn how they grow and in this way become models for us in our own struggles and striving.
Join Dr. Davin Wolok and Cantor Michael McCloskey as we explore the importance of legacy and our role within the world in Judaism. The theme of the year is theJewish Pride Curriculumand exploresthe Great Ideasour civilization gave the world. These will include but will not be limited to:

The group will meet every Thursday at 8:10 am for 50 minutes over light breakfast and coffee.
