Chattanooga Jewismenschh Film Series

Begun 2008 under the leadership of Sanford Winer, the Chattanooga Jewish Film Series has become a highly attended annual event. Corporate and community sponsors enable the series to be brought to the public for $7.00 per screening, which includes popcorn and a soft drink.

The goal of the series is to bring the best quality Jewish-themed films to Chattanooga and introduce people to the Jewish Cultural Center. Committee members include Sanford Winer (chair), Sheila St. Aubin, Frank Miller and Ann Treadwell, and Stephen Black.

The 2017 Jewish Film Series kicked off Wednesday, March 15 with a showing of “Harmonia”. This was a sponsor event.  The series continued five consecutive Wednesdays (March 22 & 29, and April 5, 19, and 26) (there was no film screening the week of Passover) with “The Women’s Balcony,” “Fever at Dawn,” “1945,” The Last Mensch,” and “Nadia.”
