This program is being offered In-person at the JCC and via Zoom. Film Historians and the Curators of FilmShul, Irv Slifkin and Laurence Lerman, will explore what has made Brooklyn show business’s most fertile breeding ground for so many of the world’s most talented Jewish entertainers. Discover the colorful, culturally rich neighborhoods of Coney Island, Prospect Park, Flatbush, Brooklyn Heights, Bay Ridge and Bed-Stuy, which have given us the likes of Adam Sandler, Joan Rivers, Barbra Streisand, Harvey Keitel, Marvin Hamlisch, Lena Dunham, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Elliott Gould, Jerry Goldsmith, Debra Messing, Phil Silvers, and many more. The indelible image of Jewish Brooklyn as portrayed in film and television over the years will also be discussed. Registration Fee: $8/JCC Member; $11/Guest.
