Join us on Wednesday evening, March 7, 14, and 21, as our own Jonathan Krasner will be teaching on The Dreams of American Jews in Film, 7:45 - 9:30 PM. American Jews have been dreaming about the Land of Israel for as long as there have been Jews in America. Every year at the seder we say "L'shanah Haba'ah b'Yerushalayim," - "Next Year in Jerusalem." But the actual American encounter with Israel has often been far more complex than American Jewish dreams. In fact, we can say that the American Jews' evolving image of Zion through the decades tells us a lot more about American Jews themselves than it does about Israel. Join us as we explore these questions through three Hollywood films: Exodus (1960), Cast a Giant Shadow (1966), Munich (2005). See our FLYER for more details!
