What Connects Torah and Teachers in Film?

On Monday night, Yehudis Fishman presents the first showing of a project based on relating Torah principles to scenes from outstanding films. The program will include clips from movies that focus on the power of teachers and parents to inspire and influence young people to live their full potential and become constructive members of society.

In Chai’er Education:  Inspirational Teachers in Film, Fishman’s premise is that Torah provides guidelines not just for Jews, but for all of civilization. The verse from Isaiah, that Jews should be ‘a light to the nations,’ is implemented through this novel model of exploring the links between Jewish teachings and positive secular values. Morah Yehudis Fishman has been working on this project for a year, with a generous grant from Rose Community Foundation. Her multimedia presentation will include a presentation, clips and discussion.

Monday August 29th at 7:00 pm at the Boulder JCC – 3800 Kalmia Ave. Boulder, CO 80301. Cost: $5 at the door

Co-sponsored by Menorah: Arts, Culture and Education at the Boulder JCC. Additional info here.
