NAVON: A Festival of Israeli Film - "Ajami"

Thursday, July 25, 2024 19 Tammuz 5784

2:00 PM - 4:30 PMLibrary

NAVON (Sinai's community for those over 65 years of age) is excited to sponsor A Festival of Israeli Film in honor of Israel's 75th year. This series shows award-winning Israeli films, from the early classics to modern gems.

This month we'll be watching Ajami, a 2009 drama that chronicles the stories of five residents of Ajami, a religiously mixed neighborhood in Jaffa. This film features a melting pot cast of Arab, Palestinian, Jewish and Christian characters with intersecting storylines that lead to a dramatic collision of different worlds and unforeseen consequences.

We'll meet in Sinai's small social hall for the screening and a discussion to follow. Drinks and movie popcorn will be served!


  • Late Marriage, Monday, August 5, 2:00 pm: This 2001 release follows ZaZa, the adult son of tradition-minded Georgian Jewish immigrants who are determined to find him an appropriate wife. Little do they know that ZaZa is secretly dating a divorcee with a child, ultimately forcing him to choose between family traditions and the love of his life. RSVP Here
  • Ushpizin, Wednesday, September 11, 2:00 pm: The 2004 film following Moshe and Mali, a broke Hasidic couple in Jerusalem who are praying for a miracle ahead of Sukkot. Suddenly they find an abandoned sukkah, become the unexpected beneficiaries of charity and find themselves hosting two escaped convicts. Before they know it these miracles become trials, causing conflict and testing their relationship. RSVP Here
