Two Great Summer Movies!

Wednesday, June 21st, 6:30 PM

“Crossing Delancy” (Romantic Comedy)

Isabelle Grossman (Amy Irving) is an attractive, intelligent Jewish woman in her early 30s.  She has a good job and a nice apartment and she values her independence; she often visits her “Bubbie” (grandmother), who wants Isabelle to meet a nice Jewish man and settle down.  Bubbie goes so far as to obtain the services of Hannah Mandelbaum, a matchmaker who finds the “perfect” man for Isabelle:  a Lower East Side pickle salesman named Sam Posner!  The rest is a romantic comedy called “Crossing Delancy”!

Wednesday, August 2nd, 6:30 PM

“Keeping the Faith” (comedy drama)

Keeping the Faith is a film about love, friendship, and faith.  Priest Brian Finn and rabbi Jacob Schram (Ben Stiller) have known each other since childhood.  When Anna Reilly, whom they both knew as children, returns to New York, both men find themselves attracted to her, sparking rivalry and personal dilemmas:  Brian has taken a vow of celibacy, and Jacob is allowed to marry only within his own Jewish faith!  (Directed by actor Edward Norton)
