Warm Place. Cool Shul. 

Havdallah Film Café

Just one wonderful night at the movies remains in the 2018-19 season! Saturday evening programs begin with a warm Havdallah service followed by a casual, delicious dinner. After dinner, we watch an award-winning film and hold a thought-provoking discussion.

Tickets are $20 if purchased on the Adath Israel website or through the Adath Israel office by Tuesday, February 26, 2019. All reservations for dinner must be made by Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 12:00 PM; we cannot accept walk-ins for dinner. For those who would like to watch the movie (which begins at 7:30 PM) but not join us for dinner, a $5 donation to Havdallah Café is suggested.

March 2, 2019 at 6:30 PM - Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story - Co-sponsored by Sisterhood

What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII. Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life—from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigré; to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film Ecstasy; to her glittering Hollywood life; to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions; to her latter years, when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten - Bombshell brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.
