This past Sunday the “Pillar of Yiddish Theater” Mr. Fyvush Finkel passed away at 93 known for his many roles including Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof” and the cantankerous lawyer in the TV series “Picket Fences.”
On Thursday evening August 18th Fyvush Finkel will appear on the big screen in the documentary “Deli Man” being shown at the Westminster Promenade AMC for an exclusive one time showing, hosted by Chabad of NW Metro Denver.
A candle lighting tribute to Finkel will be made before the screening by Mr. Michael Faulkner of Lafayette, on behalf of his late father the legendary Joe Papp, who Fyvush performed for in Joe Papp’s Cafe Royal in the Shakespeare in the Park Festival.
This is the second annual Jewish themed movie night at the AMC that Chabad has hosted and Rabbi Benjy Brackman, Chabad’s executive director is thrilled about showing “Deli Man.” “We chose “Deli Man” to offer the North Metro community a taste of the Jewish Deli food experience and the rich history that went along with it” says Brackman.
Tickets purchased online will include a kosher deli sandwich and beverage. Tickets are just $18 and are available at www.COJewish.com/deliman or by calling 720-984-5805.
The movie is sponsored by Bath and Granite 720 398 6598
