The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to present in partnership with Seaside Jewish Community, the fifth annual Rehoboth Beach Jewish Film Festival. The mission of this event is to deepen awareness of Jewish cultures and experiences, and to explore community differences and commonalities through the art of film.
In this time of rising anti-Semitic violence throughout the world, it is crucial for the Rehoboth Beach Jewish Film Festival to celebrate the culture and history of the Jewish people. The twelve films presented over five days (March 11-15) are diverse, hopeful and inspiring. Many of the films deal with finding commonalities, whether within oneself, in a relationship or amongst historically adversarial communities. Others deal with the moral imperative of remembering, of keeping the past alive. Universal themes of love and family are also explored through a distinctly Jewish lens. There is much hope to be found in this year’s selection of films, and we invite you to come experience it with family, friends, and neighbors.
The individuals who make this event happen are the volunteer members of the Planning Committee who spend many hours watching numerous films, discussing each film’s suitability for this event, and then deciding on the final selection for your enjoyment. A special thanks to Marsha Davis, Helen Gates, Marty Rosensweig and Fran Saltzman for their commitment, time, and support.
To respect the Jewish Sabbath, Seaside Jewish Community is not hosting the films on Friday night or Saturday afternoon.
