Join us this winter when you are looking to stay warm for our new “JLC Movies in the Library”.
What does a movie about a woman looking for love in NYC, a young man in an army training program, and a boy having a bar mitzvah have in common? Join us on Sunday mornings February 2nd, March 1st, and March 22nd at 10 am and watch an iconic pop-culture movie about growing pains in Jewish America. Free refreshments.
Programs will be done by noon.
The first film on February 2nd. is Crossing Delancey (PG, 1988) with Amy Irving and Peter Riegert and featuring Yiddish theatre actress Reizl Bozyk in her only film.
Isabelle’s life revolves around the New York bookshop she works in and the intellectual friends of both sexes she meets there. Her grandmother remains less than impressed and decides to hire a good old-fashioned Jewish matchmaker to help Isabelle’s love-life along. Enter pickle-maker Sam who immediately takes to Isabelle. She, however, is irritated by the whole business, at least at the beginning. Amy Irving was nominated for a Golden Globe for this movie.
