12:00 PM   Film: Every Face Has A Name

What is it like to be captured during war and mistaken for being a spy? How is it to live six years in hiding dressed like a girl, when you are a young boy? What happens when you have experienced such gruesome things, that you are trying to keep your own memory away? In Every Face Has A Name, Elsie, Bernard, Nerit and other survivors from 2nd World War tell their stories as they discover themselves in an archive reel shot on April 28,1945, the day they were finally being liberated from the German camps. In the archive film they are anonymous faces in large crowds of refugees. But they all have a name. And they all have a story to tell. Stories about escape, survival and starting life again.

3:30 PM Film: Who Will Write Our History?" 
 Who Will Write Our History tells the story of Emanuel Ringelblum and the Oyneg Shabes Archive, the secret archive he created and led in the Warsaw Ghetto. With 30,000 pages of writing, photographs, posters, and more, the Oyneg Shabes Archive is the most important cache of in-the-moment, eyewitness accounts from the Holocaust. It documents not only how the Jews of the ghetto died, but how they lived. The film is based on the book of the same name by historian and West Hartford resident Samuel Kassow.
5:00 PM Film: The Last of the Unjust
"A historic film." - The New Yorker. "A monumental film." - Film Comment 1975.
In Rome, Claude Lanzmann filmed a series of interviews with Benjamin Murmelstein, the last President of the Jewish Council in the Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia, the only "Elder of the Jews" not to have been killed during the war. A rabbi in Vienna, following the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, Murmelstein fought bitterly with Adolf Eichmann, week after week for seven years, managing to help around 121,000 Jews leave the country, and preventing the liquidation of the ghetto.  In 2012. Claude Lanzmann, at 87,without masking anything of the passage of time on men, but showing the incredible permanence of the locations involved ,exhumes these interviews shot in Rome, returning to Theresienstadt, the town given to the Jews by Hitler, a so-called model ghetto, but a ghetto of deceit chosen by Adolf Eichmann to dupe the world. We discover the extraordinary personality of Benjamin Murmelstein: a man blessed with a dazzling intelligence and a true courage, which, along with an unrivaled memory, makes him a wonderfully wry, sardonic and authentic storyteller. Through these three periods, from Nisko in Poland to Theresienstadt, and from Vienna to Rome, the film provides an unprecedented insight into the genesis of the Final Solution. It reveals the true face of Eichmann, and exposes without artifice the savage contradictions of the Jewish Councils.
Maariv 8:40 pm

 A Bayit for the Bayit
The mezuzot on the doorways of our homes are  Jewish consciousness-shifting tools.  The text within includes, Shema (listen) V’ahavta (and you shall love) and V’hayah eem Shamoa (when you really hear) carry a message that transforms your home into a sacred space for listening, understanding and loving.  Through study, story, art, and text we will connect these words to our heart and our homes.  With deepened understanding we will then go on a guided walk to view images of mezuzot from across the globe.  Maggid Educator Chana Stein will guide you in the creation of your own glass mezuzah cases decorated with wire, beads, and glass paint.
