Event description

Description

An intimate look at four once-thriving American Jewish communities now fighting for survival. In Latrobe, PA, we witness the closing of the synagogue through the story of longtime member Mickey Radman who keeps the doors open long enough for the Bat Mitzvah of the shul’s oldest member’s granddaughter. In Butte, MT, we meet the indefatigable Nancy Oyer who tries to maintain her community while struggling with her personal health. In Laredo, TX, a young interfaith couple is torn between reviving their fading community or moving to a thriving one in San Antonio that can nurture the spiritual growth of their young family. And, in a twist, we meet a Los Angeles family who takes up Dothan, Alabama’s bold offer to provide Jews up to $50,000 to relocate to Dothan’s Jewish community.

Discussion with Rabbi James Greene, Associate Executive Director, Springfield JCC
