KM Men’s and Women’s Club Presents: The Chosen

We’ll have a screening at KM of the 1981 movie, The Chosen.

Set in the Brooklyn of the 1940’s, the story elucidates the friendship between two young Jews of differing factions. Daniel is Hasidic, while Reuven is a Zionist; though separated ideologically, the boys find a common bond through their love of the neighborhood games of stickball. Based on Chaim Potok’s best-selling novel, the family differences of the boys force both to make difficult choices about their friendship and the new state of Israel.

Rabbi Michael Gotlieb will lead a discussion of the movie afterward.

All are invited. Requested donation: $10 at the door. Please RSVP.
