Join Tamar Sommer, Congregational Shlicha (Israeli Emissary) for an Israeli-style dinner (falafel, pita, and homemade salads) followed by a movie for adults and a movie for kids. Following Maktub, there will be a discussion for adults about how the film reflects life in Israel. For children who do not want to watch Abulele, there will be Israeli games and crafts.
Maktub, Arabic for “it is written,” is the biggest Israeli blockbuster since 1986. Steve and Chuma are two criminals who are the sole survivors of a terrorist attack at a restaurant in Jerusalem. They decide to change their ways and become flesh and blood angels. They go on a journey of fulfilling wishes for people who write requests on paper and put them between the sacred stones of the Wailing Wall. (Rated TV-MA, Hebrew with English subtitles)
Abulele Ancient legends warn children about the Abulele, enormous, furry and sometimes dangerous monsters who are able to hide among the human race by making themselves invisible except to special children who are in need of a friend. In this heartfelt family film, Adam, a young boy grieving from the loss of his brother, discovers an Abulele living in his building. But when Adam realises that it is not the Abulele but the humans who are the real monsters, he risks everything to save his friendly giant.
(Rated PG, Hebrew with English subtitles
