Sallah Shabbati- September 18th at 10:00 a.m.

                                                                            The sharp, often hilarious satire that became the most successful film in Israeli history is about new immigrants Sallah and his family, who are left in a shack near their promised apartment and are abandoned for months. A Yemenite Jewish family that was flown to Israel during “Operation Magic Carpet” – a clandestine operation that flew 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel the year after the state was formed – is forced to move to a government settlement camp. The patriarch of the family, portrayed by Chaim Topol, tries to make money and get better housing, in a country that can barely provide for its own and is in the midst absorbing hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees from Arab countries.

The JJC will be going “all aboard” our first ever “Shabbat at Sea”.  This is a unique opportunity to travel, dine, play and pray together.  Members of our congregation will visit the Island of Nassau, Bahamas and truly experience a restful Shabbat at Sea.  In order for our cruise to be all that we hope it can be, we are looking for strong committments to join us as soon as possible.  I hope you will take up this offer to experience what Judaism is all a”boat”.
