"Brown Bag Movie Night" Thursday August 25 6:30PM

The Community Free Synagogue's next "Brown Bag Movie Night" features the new Israeli film "Rabin- the Last Day", a cautionary story of unchecked religious extremism and the danger it poses to a democratic society.


"Winner of the Human Rights Film Network Award at the Venice International Film Festival, docudrama "Rabin- The Last day" sheds light on a grim turning point in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and the religious and nationalistic fanaticism that continues to exert dangerous sway in Israel." (Atlanta Jewish Film Festival).


Pack you dinner, the soft drinks and admission are free.

 We meet in the Southwest Florida Masonic Center  10868 Metro Pkwy in South Fort Myers (MAP)

Now in its 11th year, The Community Free Synagogue is a new and progressive model for the 21st century American synagogue guided by Rabbi Bruce Diamond, D.D., a noted community leader, scholar and master teacher.  C.F.S. does not sell memberships tickets or set fees for any of its many programs and events.  The synagogue is an open community resource whose mission is prayer, study and benevolent acts. The synagogue is comfortably supported through a spirit of volunteerism and by the generosity of the hundreds of households that make C.F.S. their congregational home. All of its programs and events, including youth Hebrew and Jewish education, are open to all without fees or solicitations.
