The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County presents a Jewish Film Shorts Festival on Sunday, September 17, 2017, at 2 p.m. With shorts ranging from vintage to contemporary, serious as well as comedic, the screening will be followed by a discussion led by Seymour Levin, and former board member of the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival. Levin also founded The Kehillah of Chester County Summer Shorts Jewish Film Festival of Chester County, Pennsylvania (now in its fourth year). Admission is $10 non-members, $8 members, and students free. The shorts to be presented include: Dear G-d Israel | 2014 | 13 min. (Directors: Guy Nattiv and Erez Tadmor) In this beautiful and poetic film, we witness life at the Western Wall through the eyes of Aaron, one of the site's security guards. Ave Maria USA, Israel | 2015 | 15 min. (Director: Basil Khalil) The silent routine of 5 Palestinian nuns in the West Bank wilderness is disrupted when a family of Israeli settlers knock on their door after crashing into the convent's wall. Together they come up with an unorthodox plan to get them home. Salomea's Nose USA | 2014 | 22 min. (Director: Susan Korda) Salomea remembers the day her brothers disfigured her and themselves for life. Their mother called it The Day of Tragedy, and blamed it on fate, though fate and tragedy have a different meaning by the end of her tale. The Funeral UK | 2013 | 10 min. (Directors: Phil Montgomery and Alex Quinn) Arnold Cowan is not a religious man. He does not believe in any of "that nonsense," which is a bit of a problem, because his son wants a proper bar mitzvah. West Bank Story USA | 2005 | 21 min.
