Beth Ami April Havdalah and Movie Night

Beth Ami, the Colorado Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, is holding its April Havdalah & Movie Night on Saturday, April 24th at 6 pm in the home of Barry & Donna Levene.  The movie is “Black to the Promised Land“:

What happens when eleven black teenagers from Bedford-Stuyvesant – a tough New York City neighborhood of drugs, guns, and graffiti – spend ten weeks on a quiet Israeli kibbutz? How do these youths with “bad habits and unrecognized potential” adjust to the demands of kibbutz living? All they know of Jews are the black-garbed Hasidim whose communities border their own; all they know about Israel are the headlines. But when their teacher suggests the trip to the kibbutz, they’re eager to go. With winning portraits of guests and hosts, Black to the Promised Land explores the different expectations of the kibbutz members and the black teens. Both were alien to each other and both were surprised by what they found. As the teens grapple with structure, responsibility, and boredom, the kibbutz is infused with the high spirits of their visitors. –95 minutes.
