Rabbis’ Favorite Films Series, Film 1: The Wizard of Oz

Welcome to the Rabbis’ Favorite Films series — in which three fabulous (and very different) films will be presented at CBI, with bagels and lox, and with some contextualizing remarks / conversation about how these films connect with Jewish ideas and themes.

The original trailer for the Wizard of Oz movie. If you can’t see the embedded video, you can go directly to it at YouTube.This coming Sunday, Rabbi Pamela Wax will kick off the series with The Wizard of Oz — through Jewish eyes.

Please join us for something a little different….a fun, relaxing and informative morning. Plus bagels and lox….what could be better?!

Further installments of the series will include Rabbi Rachel Barenblat presenting Local Hero in July and Cantor Bob Scherr presenting Israeli film Walk on Water in August. All films will be screened on a “large-ish” screen in the CBI classroom.
