Our distinguished Israeli film host, Emanuel Cohn, has agreed to continue with our annual mini-Israeli film program
Once again, we are offering three Israeli films, each to be viewed at your own leisure. Then we will come together on Zoom one Sunday in November, December, and January to discuss each featured film with our host, a film lecturer, award-winning actor, and screenwriter.
The discussion will include a glimpse behind the scenes and in-depth conversation as we explore the relationship between history, culture, and identity in each film.
A link will be sent to you to watch the film a week before the appointed date, together with a second link to join the Sunday discussion on Zoom.
Sign up for all three films: $50.00 | Sign up for individual films: $18.00 each
