Sunday Night Movies at The Temple

February 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sunday Night Movies at The Temple – 

February 15

The third offering in the fascinating film series The Story of the Jews will be shown onFebruary 15 at 7:00 pm in the Waller Chapel, with Rabbi Joe Rooks Rapport as moderator. 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 the third episode, “A Leap of Faith,” Schama explores how the remarkably successful integration of Jewish talent into the mainstream of European culture and commerce stirred up the ghosts of ancient prejudice and paved the way for the Holocaust. The showing will be followed by desserts, coffee, and discussion.
