L'CHAIM: CELEBRATING JEWISH LIFE
In commemoration of the lives of the victims of the atrocity at the Tree of Life – Or L’Simcha Congregation in Pittsburgh and in solidarity with the Jewish people, the Dryden Theatre at the George Eastman Museum presents seven films celebrating Jewish life. Admission to all screenings is free. This film series is organized by the George Eastman Museum in partnership with the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester and the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester. May the memory of the eleven victims be for a blessing.
A Jewish immigrant family settles in the Avalon neighborhood of Baltimore. By the 1940s and 1950s, the tight-knit family is slowly unraveling, as each new generation embraces an American way of life, including moving to the suburbs instead of remaining with the extended family.
