This is their story. more… “A Taste of Israel” is a celebration dinner with Israeli food, music, songs and more. It immediately follows our screening of “Above and Beyond” as part of a celebration of Israel Independence Day. more… “Stars in the Dark: Emigres, Exiles and Film Noir” is our tribute to the emigres and exiles who gave rise to the noir genre.
