Films and Filmmakers is a Wilshire Boulevard Temple program that presents film screenings of new and timely Jewish films, often accompanied by the director or producer of the film.

Many of these films cannot be seen anywhere else in Los Angeles, and we are proud to offer them at no cost to our congregants and the Jewish community at large.
