Temple Beth Abraham and Woodland’s Community Temple’s Adult Education Committees present: Film Shul’s presentation of Funny Girls moderated by film historians Laurence Lerman and Irv Slifkin

Beginning with Jewish mother caricatures in the silent era through their evolution to becoming an indispensable segment of the Hollywood storytelling machine, Jewish women captured the big screen with their attitudes, intelligence, appearance, style and Jewish wit. From attention grabbers like Totie Fields, Joan Rivers, and Belle Barth to super-stars like Fanny Brice, Gertrude Berg, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Molly Picon.
