MIDRASHA COMES TO CNS TUESDAYS THIS SPRING! & CNS KADIMA KICKOFF EVENT

MIDRASHA COMES TO CNS TUESDAYS THIS SPRING!


JEWISH CINEMA with Shalom Rosenberg, Tuesdays 6-730pm
January 11 - May 17

 What does film mean to you in your life? This class will explore the "Jewish image" on screen. Each week we will watch film clips and discuss various themes (like assimilation, antisemitism, Orthodox Judaism, tradition vs. progression, struggling to fit in, etc.) and genres (comedy, horror, drama, thriller, documentary, animated films, and more). We will work together to make meaning of what we see and figure out how it applies to our lives. We will watch some films that you have probably seen and some that you have probably never heard of. Some films may be funny, sad, weird, awesome, scary, awful, and any other adjective you can think of. We will watch both classic and current movies. You should expect to have fun, to learn about yourself and your Jewish identity and to be open to participating in discussions about what we watch. Screenings will include some of the following: The Jazz Singer, Keeping Up With the Steins, The Hebrew Hammer, Liberty Heights, Fiddler on the Roof, Waltz With Bashir, Walk on Water, Yentl, The Great Dictator, Borat, The Producers, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Keeping the Faith, When Do We Eat?, and more.  Open to 8-12th grade.  Begins Jan. 11.  Class includes dinner.
