This weekend we’ll have the second installment of 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.
This week’s movie will be Local Hero. Here’s how IMDB describes it: “An American oil company sends a man to Scotland to buy up an entire village where they want to build a refinery. But things don’t go as expected…”
The original trailer for Local Hero. If you can’t see the embedded video, you can go directly to it at YouTube.
Along with brunch, Reb Rachel will offer a short introduction to seeing this film 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 will feature 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. Join us!
