Guests immerse themselves in films that touch on the Jewish experience, such as Saviors on the Screen: Nicky’s Family, which documents the pre-WWII rescue of almost 700 Czech and Slovak children by an Englishman (Monday, April 8, at 6 p.m.).

Settle in to watch The World is Funny, the lauded 2012 Israeli film that follows several interweaving stories created by writer and director Shemi Zarhin. A celibate woman finds herself pregnant, a radio host revives a comedy group to save his marriage, and a boy awakens after eight years with a secret—added up, these stories earned this feature the most Ophir-award (Israeli Academy Awards) nominations in history.

Israel Film Center

Israel Film Center’s name says it all. The establishment corrals Israeli-themed films to promote and expand the country’s presence in the world of cinema. The center’s library of feature films, short films, television shows, and documentaries gives members easy access to home screenings without requiring a working knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System. Meanwhile, the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan brings many of these to the big screen and provides educational opportunities through classes and online materials. The center also sponsors a film festival that rolls out its diverse lineup of flicks over eight days at venues throughout the city.
