Special Event
Celebrating Israel's 70th Birthday:
Wednesday Night @ The Movies
Wednesdays, June 6 & 13 at 7:00 p.m., Offit Auditorium

June 6 - Sallah Shabati  (1964) with Ben Kreshtool, Beth El Ritual Director and Sivan Chaban of BZD - The sharp, often hilarious satire that became the most successful film in Israeli history is about new immigrants Sallah and his family, who are left in a shack near their promised apartment and are abandoned for months. A Yemenite Jewish family that was flown to Israel during "Operation Magic Carpet" - a clandestine operation that flew 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel the year after the state was formed - is forced to move to a government settlement camp. The patriarch of the family, Sallah, tries to make money and get better housing, in a country that can barely provide for its own and is in the midst absorbing hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees from Arab countries.

June 13 - Dimona Twist  (2016) with Hana Bor, Ph.D. of BHI, Towson University and Neil Rubin, Ph.D. of Beth Tfiloh Dahan High School.
