REEL JUDAISM Explores the Modern Jewish Experience through Film
Throughout the ages, the Jewish people have explored new ways to transmit their culture and values. The study of our sacred texts will always by paramount in our approach to learning. Indeed, today, the entire corpus of sacred texts of Judaism can be accessed by purchasing one DVD! People can even pray or study Torah using their iPhones. Our Temple’s New Movie Series, Reel Judaism, will offer to our congregation some of the outstanding films made in the United States, Europe, and Israel that explores various aspects of Jewish life, history, and culture. Every one of these films has received numerous awards at film festivals throughout the world. These films are both provocative and entertaining. Most of them have never been shown in Kansas City!
