Working Woman, Sunday, March 7, 2021
This Israeli film which won for Best Actress and had four other nominations at the Israel Film Academy, is about Orna, the mother of three young children with a husband struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family Orna returns to the workplace. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink.

Fiddler: Miracle of Miracles, Sunday, April 11, 2021
The story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving. It is a piece of art about refugees, intolerance and the perennial clash of modernity with tradition. It manages to speak to audiences across both generations and national boundaries.
With scenes from Broadway and cinematic versions of Fiddler on the Roof, this film is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
