ANNUAL CHANUKAH PARTY and FILM
Traveling library, Mentor’s Corner and Chanukah buffet open at 1:00. Program begins at 1:30. JGSLA MEMBERS FREE and GUESTS $5.00. This is a great opportunity to bring friends to learn about JewishGen and get into the holiday spirit. The film will be Yoo-Hoo Mrs Goldberg:
Gertrude Berg rose to prominence in the 1930s as the star of “The Goldbergs,” a pioneering radio program and, later, a TV sitcom, which she also created, wrote and produced. Director Aviva Kempner tells the story of this important, overlooked figure in entertainment history, explaining her background — she arrived in the U.S. as an inexperienced Jewish immigrant — and interviewing notable figures such as writer/producer Norman Lear and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
