HAZAK will screen the modern Israeli classic: Waltz with Bashir, which tracks the physical and psychological journey of the film maker, Ari Folman, around the world to meet with former comrades who help him remember his role as a soldier in the 1982 war in Lebanon. This film joins others that HAZAK has shown over the past three years that have also explored the nature of memory: Rashomon, and Twelve Angry Men. Dr. Kenneth Weiss will be the moderator.
Please RSVP to Coleman Poses or Helen Feinberg.
HAZAK programs are planned for our seniors (age 55+) and are geared to both reflect common interests and get us to “stretch” to try new activities as well. Our well-attended book group meets monthly all year long on the third Wednesday morning of the month. HAZAK also sponsors book talks by local authors, including GJC members, as well as speakers on topics of particular importance to our interests. We host Sam Feinberg each August to discuss opera, and we show great films! We take day trips to cultural and natural sites in the area, often to places members have never been (like the Philadelphia Waterworks and Chanticleer Gardens), and plan tours to institutions such as the Kimmel Center and Academy of Music. HAZAK is for all of us to stay connected to GJC and to each other: to venture out and experience parts of our city we haven't seen before, to read, learn and talk together, to keep us strong. We hope you will join us.
