The New Jew Film at Neustadt JAAMM Series
November 10, 2022
For this JAAMM experience, a panel of local Rabbis from various denominations will dive into the themes that “The New Jew” provokes and the mirror that the show holds to the American Jewish experience.
The panel will consist of, Rabbi Barry Gelman of the Denver Kehillah, Rabbi Emily Hyatt of Temple Emanuel, and Rabbi Dave Yedid of Base Denver. Moderating the panel is JEWISHColorado’s Shaliach (Israeli Emissary) Itai Divisinksy. The series in its entirety will be available for ticketholders to stream two weeks prior to the event and a week following. Following the panel discussion, audience members are invited to join the panelists in the Phillips Social Hall for small round table group discussions and refreshments.
This 4-episode documentary series was a smash hit in Israel! The show’s host, Guri Alfi, is a famous Israeli entertainment celebrity whose name is on the credits of many works as a comedian, actor, director, and writer. In “The New Jew”, Guri’s journey through American Jewry is a comedic and open-minded dialogue and includes a couple of important stops in Colorado. For the Israeli audience, “The New Jew” explores and shines a light on American Jewish Life. American Jews will find that the series provides an interesting mirror for self-reflection and appreciation of the mosaic that makes the American Jewish community so diverse. Israel and the United States are the countries with the two largest Jewish populations on the planet and yet Jews living in both countries connect to their religion and heritage in vastly different ways.
