Jewish film festival set
The Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center and Jewish Federation of Atlantic and Cape May Counties present the 2012 Jewish Film Festival on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
The goal of the festival is to promote awareness, appreciation, pride and understanding of the diversity of the Jewish people to create One Jewish Community and strengthen consciousness of Jewish culture, history and identity through a dynamic and inclusive forum of exploration and dialogue. Some films uniquely tackle Jewish issues, while others address universal themes through a Jewish lens, but all offer inspiration, meaning and entertainment. The diverse selection of films is sure to draw a wide audience, reaching the region’s Jewish population, as well as the general film-going public. All films can be viewed at the Katz Jewish Community Center at 501 N. Jerome Avenue in Margate.
The schedule is as follows: Dolphin Boy, 2 p.m. Oct. 14; and The Infidel, 7 p.m. Oct. 17. To conclude the film festival, viewers have the option to enjoy a special prix fixe menu Oct. 17 prior to viewing “The Infidel” at Steve and Cookie’s By the Bay, 9700 Amherst Ave. in Margate. Dinner will feature selections from their appetizer, entree and dessert menu.
Film ticket prices are $5 for JCC Members and $7 for nonmembers. “Dinner and a Movie” ticket prices are $35 for JCC members and $40 for nonmembers.
