It's an Egg Cream Eggstravaganza!
Saturday, February 16 • 7 PM
The Berkshires’ Jewish Festival of Books and the Berkshire Jewish Film Festival are pleased to be collaborating on this fun event. The evening will begin with a screening of the short film Egg Cream by Nora Claire Miller, Peter Miller, and Amy Linton. Egg Cream is a bittersweet look at memory, history, and the enduring meaning of a beloved chocolate soda drink born on the Jewish Lower East Side. Following the film, author Barry Joseph will give the audience a taste via video of his book Seltzertopia: The Extraordinary Story of an Ordinary Drink. Audience members will be invited to share their own egg cream reminiscences, and enjoy real siphon bottle seltzer, milk, and Fox’s U-Bet egg creams.
$5 suggested donation.
To RSVP (strongly recommended to ensure there are enough egg creams for all), call Hevreh at 413-528-6378, or click here. The film will be shown at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, 270 State Road in Gt. Barrington.
BJFF Screening of the Award Winning Film "Arranged"
Saturday, March 23 • 8 PM
Arranged centers on the friendship between an Orthodox Jewish woman and a Muslim woman who meet as first-year teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. Over the course of the year they learn they share much in common - not least of which is that they are both going through the process of arranged marriages. (Courtesy Stefan Schader, IMDb)
