"The Jewish Americans" film

What: Documentary Film: The Jewish Americans by David Grubin. Part 1

THE JEWISH AMERICANS is a three-night documentary that explores 350 years of Jewish American history. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin, THE JEWISH AMERICANS is a journey through time, from the first settlement in 1654 to the present. It is about the struggle of a tiny minority who make their way into the American mainstream while, at the same time, maintaining a sense of their own identity as Jews. Focusing on the tension between identity and assimilation, THE JEWISH AMERICANS is quintessentially an American story, which other minority groups will find surprisingly familiar.

Narrated by actor Liev Schreiber, this landmark series features Jewish Americans who have made significant contributions to American life – from Louis D. Brandeis and Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Henry Morgenthau, Hank Greenberg, Betty Friedan, Molly Goldberg, Carl Reiner, Sid Caesar, and Tony Kushner. However this story is also about Jewish American tailors and shopkeepers, soldiers and bankers, peddlers and merchants, labor organizers and civil rights activists, all of whom also helped shape the American landscape.

    I have to say - I am so excited so many folks are signed up for this event! And for those of you who have never been to the historical society, it is a great building - the original synagogue in Phoenix. If you get there early, wander around a bit.

    Would anyone be interested in meeting at Rice Paper before the film? It's a great Vietnamese Restaurant on 7th St close to the film location, 2221 N 7th St. The Pho is excellent and there are lots of vegetarian choices on the menu. The place is fairly small so we would need to make arrangements with the staff if lots of folks choose to go.
