The exhibits, programs and events are geared to engage communities and individuals on the benefits of “going green” and employing sustainable practices.
February 26 Temple Emanu-El’s Israeli and Jewish Film Series. At 7:00 p.m. the Temple will present “This Is Sodom,” a film that broke all box office records in Israel. It is a comedy that depicts the story of the birth of the Jewish people up to the last week of the biblical city of Sodom. The Sodom of the film is an “Entertainment Mecca,” that reveals all imaginable vices and excesses, such as gambling, sex and dirty dealings — all peppered with excitement. Sounds like fun but there is relevance in its display of a biblical society not so different from modern day Israeli society.
