Stamford JCC Israeli Film Series Presents Ushpizin 

Thursday, February 18th at 7 pm at the Stamford JCC 1035 Newfield Ave., Stamford. 

Ushpizin (2004), the critically acclaimed film brought to you by writer Shuli Rand, is a heartwarming and light-hearted look into the lives of ultra-Orthodox Jews living in modern-day Israel.  The film follows the hardships of Moshe (Shuli Rand) and Malli (Michal Bat-Sheva Rand), an Orthodox Jewish couple in Jerusalem, who rely on their faith for miracles during the holiday season.  Ushpizin received Best Actor Award for Shuli Rand at the 2004 Israeli Film Academy.  Following the film, Or Berger, The Stamford JCC's Israeli Shaliach, will lead us in a discussion.  Popcorn will be served.  $5 suggested donation.

To reserve tickets or for more information, contact Or Berger at 203-962-5533 or  oberger@stamfordjcc.org
