Movie Night Featuring L’dor V’dor: The History of B’nai Jeshurun

Thursday, December 15 at 7pm

Join documentarian Todd Kwait for a congregational viewing of his milestone film, L’dor V’dor: The History of B’nai Jeshurun on Thursday, December 15. The film explores the history of our synagogue through historic recordings, photographs, interviews, and newly filmed footage and depicts B'nai Jeshurun's place within the broader historical context of the Jewish people. We will watch the film, which premiered at the Gala Premiere, followed by Q&A and a lovely dessert reception.  This event is free and open to the community.


With the support of a generous donor, the synagogue is now streaming programs and services from The David J. Moskowitz Sanctuary and Nickman Chapel. If you are sick, out of town, or just unable to attend services, with the click of a button you can now watch our services live, or at your convenience in our archives. Click here to watch live-streaming or explore our video archive. 




More than 300 congregants, friends and community members walked the red carpet on Sunday, October 30th at our Sesquicentennial Gala Premiere, as we raised a remarkable $270,000 for our Ensuring the Future endowment campaign, through commemorative ads, sponsorships, auction bids and donations.  It's not every day that a synagogue celebrates 150 years, especially a history as rich as ours!  As we wrap up our year-long anniversary celebration, we hope you agree that this has been an amazing year of "honoring the past, celebrating the present and ensuring the future."
