Honoring the JCC Founding Fathers who have passed away in 2020

The JCC honors three Board Presidents who have passed away in 2020, Jay Hertz, Ed Caplan, and Larry Lubar.

We have an answer to the age-old question: “What’s a Jew to Do on Christmas?” We hope you’ll join us to watch Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas and schmooze while noshing on Chinese take-out!
The film tells the story of Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, and the many Jewish composers who wrote some of the best-loved Christmas songs of all time. Set in a Chineses restaurant (where else?) on Christmas Eve, the film shows how many of the most iconic Chrismas songs – from the “Christmas Song” (‘chestnuts roasting on an open fire’) and “Silver Bells” to the “Little Drummer Boy” and “White Christmas” – were created by Jewish composers who helped to universalize the holidays as part of American culture. The film incorporates live performances of many of the songs, including a Yiddish version of “Winter Wonderland” and culminates in a rousing hora danced by the restaurant’s waiters and patrons.
