DELI MAN

4:00PM

Delicious and mouth-watering!

Laugh your way through hilarious stories of American delicatessens while drooling over the wonderful Jewish food being prepared before your eyes. From New York to Chicago to San Francisco and even to Texas, enjoy the oddball company of the obsessed deli proprietors behind the corned beef, the kreplach and the magnificent matzo ball soup. You won’t want to miss third-generation Houston deli-owner Ziggy Gruber, the maven of deli mavens!

THEODORE BIKEL: IN THE SHOES OF SHOLOM ALEICHEM
7:00PM

Nostalgic and uplifting

Two beloved Jewish icons in one film! Sholem Aleichem, the great Jewish storyteller, and Theodore Bikel, troubadour, actor and one of the most popular stage interpreters of Aleichem’s work. The stories of both men are intertwined through the story and music of Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof and other beloved Yiddish melodies. Truly a film to make you laugh, cry and remember!
