A diverse and engaging crowd filled the lobby of the Greenville One Center on August 25th for the showing of the documentary, Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles. The Max Lewkowicz’s film took an in-depth look at the origins of the Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof. It did more than take us down memory lane, the documentary demonstrated how this distinctly Jewish musical has become universal and is embraced by many cultures. Fiddler on the Roof endures because nearly every culture has gone through some kind of upheaval. Learning how to emerge intact from that upheaval is an ongoing process.

In addition to the movie, we served delicious authentic Eastern European food : Apple, Noodle, and Potato Kugels. Borscht. Herring, Whitefish, and Mock Chop Liver spreads. Challah, Babka, and Fruit Compote as well as Israeli wine. Music by Bandana Klezmer, Greenville County Youth Orchestra, and Igor Begelman - Peace Center’s Artist in Residence filled the area with delightful tunes. And last but not least, setting the stage for our feature film, Dr. Jim Dant, the Senior Minister at First Baptist Greenville and Founding Board Member of the GJFF, gave a profound and enlightening introduction.

We thank everyone who came out to support the Greenville Jewish Film Festival and hope those who attended walked away with full stomachs and enriched hearts. Until next time!

Who We Are

Connecting our community, one film at a time.

Our mission is simple: showcase films that expose the community of Greenville to the rich and diverse heritage of Judaism.  Our hope is that through the art of film, we can inspire our community to see beyond differences, and rather connect over the ties that bind us all, like respect, love and passion. Our selection of movies allows for an opportunity to think critically and feel powerfully. We hope you join us, whether it's as a participant, volunteer or sponsor...or all three!
