Join us as we celebrate our 18th "chai-life" milestone as the newest and largest program of the Stroum Jewish Community Center. This is an exciting and important time to show your support and attend. Featuring a series of nine films, "Not a Lawyer, Not a Doctor: Jews in the Arts" – touting Jewish creativity in various disciplines: cartoon arts and graphic novels, Broadway musicals and theatre, dance, photography and cinema. Learn more about the creative, sometimes controversial genius of Art Spiegelman, Joann Sfar, the Bolshoi Ballet, Barbara Streisand, Irving Berlin, Roman Polanski and Woody Allen. And don't miss dancing a giant horah to the tune of that ubiquitous Jewish party tune, "Hava Nagila" at our Matzoh Momma Sunday Brunch before the film Hava Nagila (The Movie) about its fantastic story.
