Jewish Heritage Museum Presents a Virtual Summer Film Festival 

The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County presents a Virtual Summer Film Festival with the two following films: 

  • Here We Are (August 11-13th): Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri is autistic, and now as a young adult it might be time for him to live in a specialized home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son and hits the road, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it, in fact, his father who is not ready?

  • Thou Shalt Not Hate (August 25-27th): A split-second decision at a traffic accident triggers repercussions for a Jewish surgeon and a neo-Nazi’s daughter, a gripping new drama. Simone, a Holocaust survivor’s son, rushes to the scene of a hit-and-run. But when he sees a swastika tattoo on the victim’s chest, he leaves the gravely wounded man to his fate. Wracked with guilt, the anguished doctor confronts the ethics of his choice, and bonds with the victim’s daughter, embroiling himself in greater conflict.

ADMISSION: $10 per film or $18 for both films. You may watch the film at any time during the screening dates.
