Sunday Night Movie at The Temple
October 12 at 7pm in The Temple Waller Chapel
The first offering the new film series – The Story of the Jews – will be shown on October 12 at 7 pm in The Temple Waller Chapel. Moderated by Rabbi Joe Rooks Rapport, this epic five-part PBS series, with historian Simon Schama, explores the extraordinary story of the Jewish experience from ancient times to the present day. Drawing on original scholarship and Schama’s own family history, this is a story that is at once deeply historical and utterly contemporary, taking viewers on a journey from the Biblical past to tomorrow’s front pages. In this first episode, “In the Beginning,” Schama begins his exploration of the Jewish story at the start, 3,000 years ago. The showing will be followed by desserts, coffee, and discussion. Open and free to the community.
