Jewish Literature: Film and Text

An offshoot of the People of the Book Discussion Group founded many years ago, this initiative combines literature with its cinematic adaptations. Amherst Cinema hosts the event which typically begins at 7:00 pm with a screening of the film followed by a scholar-led discussion of the film and the book paired with it.
