Afternoon @ the Movies

Afternoon @ the Movies - March 23, 2017

On March 23, 2017 Afternoon @ the Movies will present Streit's: Matzo and the American Dream. Since 1925 the Streit's matzo factory has sat in a lowslung tenement building on Manhattan's Lower East Side. While other matzo companies have modernized, Streit's remained a piece of living history, churning out 40 percent of the nation's unleavened bread on pre-War machinery as old as the factory itself. Filmmaker Michael Levine captures the Streit's saga and how it echoes the American Dream.

Torah Fund Book Club

Michal Lemberger will discuss her debut collection of short stories, After Abel and Other Stories, with the Sisterhood Torah Fund Book Club after Shabbat Kiddush on Saturday, January 14 at 12:30pm. Vividly reimagined with startling contemporary clarity, Lemberger gives voice to silent, oft-marginalized biblical women: their ambitions, their love for their children, their values, their tremendous struggles and challenges.
