The Barshop JCC Jewish Film Festival promotes Jewish values and diversity through the medium of film, striving to entertain, educate, and raise community awareness of Jewish identity, history, and culture. The Festival was conceived in 2001 by Mel Pomerantz, whose persistent efforts brought it to life.
