Cinema Tikvah Starts Spring Screenings

Join us at 6:30 pm on January 21st. Wait! What? ….  Isn’t that the weekend of the inauguration?!

Cinema Tikvah Presents

Join us on  Saturday, April 2 at 6:30 for Havdalah and “My So-Called Enemy”      MY SO-CALLED ENEMY is a documentary about a group of Israeli and Palestinian teens who come to the US for a leadership conference. The film follows several of the girls for 7 years, and we see how their experience of knowing their “enemies” as human beings meets with the realities of their lives back home in the Middle East.

All are welcome to join us.
