A chance to delve deeper.
“The Farewell Party” is a unique, compassionate dark comedy of a group of friends at a Jerusalem retirement home who build a machine for self-euthanasia in order to help their terminally ill friend. When rumors of the machine begin to spread, more and more people ask for their help, and the friends are faced with a life and death dilemma.

This unusual “dramedy” was the winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Venice Film Festival. more

See the latest from international film festivals such as Cannes, Venice, and Sundance with our “pop-up” film selections. These are films right after they premiere and before anyone else gets to see them.

Our first selection, “GETT: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem”, which we screened in November, has just been nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film!

This season we’re screening a few select films accompanied by in-depth talks and discussions to deepen your understanding. Sit back, relax and be ready to expand your horizons with our new “Cinema Salon” series.

Cinema Salon kicked off in January with a SOLD OUT screening of THE DYBBUK and talk by Professor Emerita Lois Rudnick. Stay tuned for the announcement of other cinema gems and provocative discussions.
