TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Tarrytown’s Temple Beth Abraham will present films with Jewish themes on Saturday, Jan. 16, and Saturday, Feb. 20, as part of its Adult Ed program.
Both “Movie Mavens” presentations begin at 7 p.m. A moderated discussion will follow and light refreshments will be available.
- "Ida" (Jan. 16): Anna, is an orphan and a novice in 1962 Poland. She has to see Wanda, her only living relative, before she takes her final vows. Wanda tells Anna about her Jewish roots, which causes both women to start a journey not only to find their family's story. Polish, Latin, & French w/English subtitles.
- "Putzel" (Feb. 20): For Walter Himmelstein, a young man endearingly known as Putzel, life literally doesn't go beyond his family's fish store on the upper west side of Manhattan. Walter's aspirations of taking over his uncle's fish emporium are disrupted by the arrival of Sally, who becomes romantically involved with his about-to-retire and very-married uncle. Walter finds his circumscribed life thrown off kilter, and, after years of being undermined by his family and friends, finally starts to realize that he's more than a Putzel. Rated PG-13 for nudity and language.
