The Jewish Community Center Sonoma County Presents the 24th Annual Jewish Film Festival 2019, October 10 through November 12.

The Festival continues on Tuesday, October 29th, with Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas: A Short Film Series.

An offbeat musical-documentary, Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas is about Jewish immigrant-songwriters, including Irving Berlin and Mel Tormé, who wrote the soundtrack to America’s most popular holiday: Christmas. A Thousand Kisses is an endearing, animated true love story. Hilarious award-winning Jewish Blind Date follows unhappy Mary Lou as she reconnects to her Jewish roots in order to marry a religious man. Award-winning Edek weaves storytelling with hip hop as a Holocaust survivor searches for the man who saved her. Academy Award nominated Joe’s Violin traces the life of a Holocaust survivor who donates his violin to an inner-city girls’ school in the Bronx.
