Movie Mavens

Do you love watching and discussing great movies? So do we!

Movie Mavens is a very popular activity at our synagogue, with a history of many animated and interesting group discussions. Our goal is to expand participation Synagogue-wide. Our current format is to watch the selected movie at home, every couple of months, and then join a discussion on Zoom on a Sunday morning at 11am.

During Yom Kippur afternoon, we watched and discussed "Never Stop Dreaming: The Life and Legacy of Shimon Peres", a look back on the life of Nobel Peach Prize winner, Shimon Peres, who served as prime minister of Israel twice and negotiated the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty.

On May 5, 2024 at 11:00 am, we will discuss Einstein And The Bomb

Movie Mavens discussions are currently held using Zoom. Until we have in-person screenings and discussions, we are looking into options to watch the movie on a shared screen.
