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.


In a film that exults in the tradition of Jewish storytelling, Woody Allen added an extra air of authenticity by casting several revered comics, his own manager, and the owner of the Carnegie Deli as themselves. Allen, Mia Farrow, and Nick Apollo Forte star in this black-and-white comedy about a love triangle and a jilted gangster.
