20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival
For the safety and health of our community, it has become necessary to postpone our 20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival set to begin on Thursday, March 19. We will reschedule the films when we know we can do so safely. We expect that the modified festival will include screenings throughout the summer, September and October. All purchased tickets will be exchangeable once the new dates are confirmed.

2018 • 87 minutes • Latvia / Latvian, German, Yiddish
This award-winning feature film is based on the true story of Žanis Lipke, a Latvian blue-collar worker honored as one of the Righteous Among the Nations. Despite the threat of danger to his own family, Lipke embarks on a covert operation to save local Jews from Nazi persecution and certain death, moving them from the Riga ghetto to an underground bunker hidden on his property.
