Gesharim Presents A Film Screening of "Number Our Days"

Sunday, October 24, 2021 18 Cheshvan 5782

3:30 PM - 5:00 PMBeit Kehillah and Zoom

An Academy-Award Winning Documentary Directed by Lynne Littman

Based on the book by anthropologist Barbara Myerhoff, this film offers a tender portrait of elderly yet resilient Jews who form a remarkable community at Venice Beach in the mid-1970’s. In the face of poverty, aging and clashes of opinion on every possible issue, they celebrate their shared heritage and firm connections to one another.

After the short film screening of Number Our Days, please join Cantor Jaime Shpall for a teaching and discussion. In addition, our Beth Am Library Committee, led by Loren Ford, will provide a deeper look into the book itself, and acquaint us with related titles, available to borrow from our Beth Am own collection.

No registration is required for in-person attendance. Stay tuned for registration information to access the event via Zoom videoconference.
