Beth Am will be co-presenting the following films:
- Fanny's Journey: Fanny, a 12-year-old girl, stays in a hidden home far from her parents. She takes care of her two younger sisters until she is forced to flee in a rush, becoming the head of a group of eight children heading across occupied France. Learn more or purchase tickets.
- Fabbi Wolff: A Gentleman Before God: Willy Wolff escaped the Nazis, became a renowned British journalist and didn’t go to rabbinical school till he was in his 50s. Now in his 80s, he leads two communities in Germany and still finds time for yoga, learning Russian and enjoying the racetrack. We go behind the scenes to see the beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking life of a deeply religious man who is rarely seen without a twinkle in his eye. Learn more or purchase tickets.
