MOVIE NIGHT! January 26th @ Abundant Life Baptist Church. Bridges For Peace is presenting “A Bag of Marbles”, 6:30 p.m., $5/person. This movie follows two young French boy's journey across  occupied France during the second world war. This incredible true story tells of how these two young boys elude being captured by the Nazis and sent to one of the many concentration camps. This movie is all in French but has English subtitles. Rena Elbaze will be our guest speaker that evening. Rena Elbaze is the Director of Engagement and Education at Congregation Shaarey Zedek Synagogue. Rena will talk about the rise of antisemitism in Europe, but specifically France as it compares to what the Jews of France experienced in the 1930's.  Rena is able to speak with authority on this subject as she herself lived in France and saw firsthand how this ancient evil is resurfacing.
