The Film Society

Jim Ruxin, a longtime University Synagogue member and Adjunct Professor at USC School of Cinematic Arts, will curate the films and host our in-depth discussions. The Film Society will present a wide variety of meaningful domestic and International films about Jewish subjects and Jewish values.

Streaming on Amazon Prime - Hallelujah is everyone's song, not just Leonard Cohen's best known work. This moving documentary traces the roots of this universally embraced song in his Jewishness and his all too human understanding of despair and beauty, as well as holiness wherever we find it.

Watch these important, thought-provoking films in advance and join us for an in-depth discussion with Jim Ruxin and Rabbi Susan Nanus.
