A documentary film, "The Yiddish Cinema" explores how - nourished by Yiddish literature and theater - Yiddish film production in Eastern Europe and this country flourished between the two world wars. "Yiddish Cinema" traces the history of the genre through interviews, archival photographs and film clips of many of the Yiddish feature films.

The film will be preceded by a discussion led by Lipschultz. Before arriving in Wildwood, Lipschultz worked in diverse Jewish communities from Aspen, Colo., to San Diego. Among his responsibilities, Lipschultz is working to create an adult education program as well as oversee the Hebrew School and coordinate the synagogue's interfaith activities with the general community.
