The New Jew
May 5 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm EDT
Join NEXTGen Detroit at the Detroit Jewish Film Festival for a special Yom HaAtzmaut screening of The New Jew, a four-part documentary hosted by one of Israel’s most popular comedians, Guri Alfi.
Guri travels to the United States to explore what Jewish life is like here, the variety of ways American Jews practice their religion and embrace their culture, the political and cultural influences that shape Jewish life, and the rifts in relations between American and Israeli Jews. It’s funny, it’s insightful, it’s complicated…it’s very Jewish, and we’re excited to share the first two episodes with a NEXTGen Detroit audience!
The third and fourth episodes will be made available online to attendees. Popcorn, pop and Israeli treats will be provided for the perfect theater experience!
