Please mark your calendars for the next meeting of the Jewish Interest Group (JIG) Sunday, September 18l
Prior to the movie we will have a 20 minutes of Socializing. So, please bring things to share in the way of appetizers, drinks, bake goods, nosh, etc. — we will have coffee available.
The movie which Ernie Rose has suggested, and we will be playing, is “The Band’s Visit”, 2007 (87 min. long). He has the film on DVD.
The film tells the story of a small, rural Israeli town where daily routines get disrupted by an unexpected visit from a group of Egyptian police band musicians. Though aiming for Petah Tikvah, where they are scheduled to play a concert, the band members have found themselves — due to language miscues — in Bet Hatikva, where they have to stay overnight. Both the Egyptian and the Israelis learn a great deal about each other from that experience.
We expect a lively discussion about the movie afterwards.
We are also suggesting a $1 per person donation to cover incidental costs
For those who would like to help setup please get there approximately 1:30.
