Thursday, February 22, 2024   |   8:30pm

From Barry Levinson’s DinerTin Men and Avalon and Woody Allen’s Radio Days and Bullets Over Broadway to the much-beloved My Favorite YearThe Chosen, Brighton Beach Memoirs and An American Tail, we present a collection of nostalgic Jewish films that affectionately look back on the good old days of yesteryear. We also discuss their roots in the time-honored tradition of Jewish storytellers like Sholom Aleichem, Chaim Potok, Philip Roth, Michael Chabon, Cathleen Schine and others, and then give some attention to such sentimental TV shows as Brooklyn Bridge, The Goldbergs and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
