Grossman Jewish Film Festival

 

Thanks to the generosity of our late member, Harvey Grossman, we are delighted to announce the first HARVEY GROSSMAN JEWISH FILM SERIES.

Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 2pm, the first film of the series will be ‘MY SO-CALLED ENEMY.”  This award-winning Israeli film follows six Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls as they participate in a cross-cultural leadership program.  The film documents how the transformative experience of knowing their “enemies” as human beings meets with the realities of their lives in the Middle East.  The creation of new relationships across emotional, ideological, religious and physical boundaries becomes the first steps toward resolving conflict.

Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 2pm, we shall screen a film entitled ROSENWALD.  Julius Rosenwald was the Jewish financier and leader in Chicago who took a foundering little company established by Richard Sears and made it into America’s premier catalogue and brick-and-mortar emporium.  His management and merchandising genius made Sears, Roebuck an American household icon.  But what is remarkable about Rosenwald’s story is the surprising use to which he put a large portion of his fortune.  You may be amazed to learn how this member of Chicago’s German-Jewish elite exemplified the most precious Jewish values in the use of his money.

Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 2pm, we shall enjoy at least one of the two very funny comedies.  The first of these is DOUGH.  This hilarious comedy shows you don't have to be baked to make some DOUGH! An old Jewish baker takes on a young Muslim apprentice to save his failing kosher bakery.When his apprentice's marijuana stash accidentally falls in the mixing dough, the challah starts flying off the shelves! DOUGH is a warmhearted and humorous story about overcoming prejudice and finding redemption in unexpected places. 

 

 

Each of these screenings is open to the public without charge and will be held in the

 

Auditorium of the Art Museum of South Texas

1902 N Shoreline Blvd, Corpus Christi, TX 78401

Plan to save all three dates and join us at the movies.
