The documentary film "The Lion of Judah," was inspired by the Jewish Enrichment Center's (JEC) Birthright Alumni Community 2010 trip to Poland and Prague. This award-winning film follows Holocaust survivor Leo Zisman as he travels with JEC participants back to Auschwitz, bravely sharing the horrors he endured during the war. The film not only recounts Leo's experience during humanity's darkest period, but it also shines a light on the next generation of Jews, and what all of us can do to make sure history never repeats itself. Learn more about the film and view the trailer.

There will be a special Q&A tailored for a 3G audience following the film, which will include Director Matt Mindell, Producer Joe Kavitski, and potentially some participants from the trip.

“I am Carrying the Holocaust in my Pocket” is a 1-hour documentary based on a ten-week therapy group for grandchildren of survivors led by Dr. Rivka Bekerman-Greenberg, a psychoanalyst and child of survivors, during the winter and spring of 2011. The film portrays the multiple voices of four third-generation women — a writer, dancer, singer and social work student — who speak candidly about their grandparents’ stories of trauma and survival, and the impact it had on their lives. The interviews are interwoven with clips taken from the women’s art.

This is a special opportunity to join other 3Gs together to see a new off-Broadway play called "The Soap Myth," about a young investigative journalist who works to unravel a story about the Holocaust and combat deniers. The show is a serious investigation of history, but it is also a very touching and human story about the friendship between the journalist and a Holocaust survivor.

We have a discounted group rate for our group, and after the play we're invited to participate in an exclusive Q&A session with the play's director Jeff Cohen. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
