Jews of Sephardi origin, and those who appreciate Sephardi culture, are set to enjoy all things Sephardic at the 10th annual Sephardic Jewish Film Festival in New York.
Running from February 2-8, with screenings at the Center For Jewish History and the Manhattan JCC, this international event is set to attract thousands of people as well as filmmakers from around the world.
A diverse and vibrant programme includes such films as Live And Become, about an Ethiopian boy who ends up in Israel as part of Operation Moses (with a twist), Salaam Shalom, about the Jews of India, and The Last Greeks On Broom Street, which focuses on a small community of Greek Jews who lived on Manhattan's lower East Side.
Tickets cost $10, while the opening night screening of Live And Become is $45 (which includes a reception). If you want to know more about Sephardi culture and heritage, this festival provides a great introduction.
