Film at Noon – Mah-Jongg: The Tiles that Bind
Mah-Jongg is more than a game – it’s a way of life! This light-hearted yet deeply moving portrait of the Asian-American and Jewish-American women who play this centuries-old Chinese game sheds light on the experiences of the players that simultaneously define and transcend cultural boundaries. Along the way, it proves again and again to be a bridge connecting seemingly unlike individuals, spanning generations, continents and cultures, and transcending classification as merely a game. For Older Adults – Not Just for Seniors.
Film directed by Bari Pearlman and Phyliss Heller. Thursday, December 10, noon at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia. $8 for film and lunch.
"Soul to Soul" celebrates the music and shared experiences of the African American and Jewish communities through a mix of spiritual, jazz, klezmer, and folk music.
“Sam, you asked me a question I never thought about before. What if my grandfather was able to bring the violin to Israel? Would this music have this new life, this revival of spirit? Perhaps what seemed like such an injustice back then was a part of the master plan. Maybe the time wasn’t right. This violin, this music was, like Moses I suppose, never intended to enter the land of Israel.”
