Jewish Literature: Film and Text

An offshoot of the People of the Book Discussion Group founded many years ago, "Jewish Literature: Film and Text" combined literature with its cinematic adaptations. Amherst Cinema hosted 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.
