FILM: Bar Mitzvah
Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:


A fascinating piece of cultural time travel, BAR MITZVAH gives audiences a sense for what an afternoon was like in the great Yiddish theater of yesteryear. The only surviving film of Yiddish theater superstar Boris Thomashefsky, this musical melodrama is a masterwork of shundpopular lowbrow theatrical fare that was the bread and butter of the Yiddish theater. It's a kitschy romp hinging on the old chestnut about a shipwreck victim returning to find her husband remarried (to a goldbricking vamp). The National Center for Jewish Film has recently discovered and restored the film with new subtitles and translations.  The Village Voice insists, "If 'Jewish Film,' and Jewish culture at large, are about legacy, then this is required viewing, an immersion in the remembrance of the forefathers."

USA, 1935, 75 minutes, b&w
Yiddish with English subtitles
Directed by Henry Lynn
