It is instantly recognizable – musical shorthand for anything Jewish, a happy party tune that you dance to at weddings, Bar Mitzvahs and even at Major League Baseball games. It conjures up wistful smiles, memories of generations past…and no shortage of eye rolling. The film reveals the power of one song to express and sustain identity, to transmit lessons across generations and to bridge cultural divides connecting us on a universal level.

Doors open at 12:30 for refreshments.
Film starts at 1:00.

Underground parking available.
Entrance via the lane around back of the building.
