We were a small but mighty group of eager students today, from biblical archeologists to Jewish feminists to Jewish bioethicists, there was a lot of engaging learning going on!
Remember, next week we’re off to the Louisville Jewish Film Festival. I’m copying the information again below. I need to know no later than Thursday if your child will be going—thanks in advance for helping with our planning!
Here’s where I need your help and input: we’ll be seeing the film on Sunday, February 10, a week from today Thanks to the support of the Ann & Coleman Friedman Children’s Judaic Activity Fund, there is no admission fee for our students. If you want to stay and watch the film, you will need to purchase a ticket.
Please drop your children off directly at the Village 8 theatre on Dupont Circle NO LATER THAN 12:15 pm that Sunday. The film starts at 12:30. Madrichim and assistants at LBSY and The Temple have permission to leave work in order to get to the theatre by 12:15. I always order some popcorn/drink snack packs for our students so I need to know if your child will be attending by next Thursday, February 7, so I can give the theatre a heads up.

This heartwarming tale of the power of brotherly love is an unforgettable true story based on the novel. When two young Jewish brothers living in Nazi-occupied France are sent away by their parents in 1941 to join their siblings in Nice, they must fend for themselves. Relying on their courage and cunning, they set off on a dangerous mission, overcoming extraordinary odds in hopes of reuniting with their family.
