Enjoy a tasty dinner of Chinese food and a showing of the cult classic Everything is Illuminated, starring Elijah Wood. Everything is Illuminated is the story of a young American man’s quest to locate, in Ukraine, the woman who saved his grandfather from the Holocaust. The town he seeks, Trochenbrod, is a real town and the original home of Rabbi Schnitzer’s family. Rabbi Schnitzer will share stories and photos from the real Trochenbrod.

$25 in advance, $28 at the door, $10 for children under 12 – free for kids under 5. Reservations through the BJC website or by telephone.

This year we also ask that attendees donate clothing (sizes Infant – 6 years) in new or nearly new condition for Jewish children in Cuba. Proceeds to benefit BJC’s Cuba Fund. Cash donations gratefully accepted.

Cost: $25
