Picture a 30 year old, converted Jew, preparing for his Bar Mitzvah in a room full of 12 year olds. That’s H. Alan Scott, The Latter Day Jew.
On October 29, join us as we welcome to Columbia, SC, comedian H. Alan Scott with Aliza Rosen, the Director/Producer of The Latter Day Jew.
Scott and Rosen will introduce the film and participate in a lively discussion about the making of the film and Scott’s journey from Mormonism to Judaism.
Veterans Day, November 11 at the Katie & Irwin Kahn JCC at 7:00 pm
Pastor Chris Edmonds, the son of WWII hero Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds, and Stanlee Stahl, Executive Vice President of the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, will introduce Footsteps of My Father. Following the film, Edmonds will provide more intimate details of his father’s courage and bravery, saving the lives of more than 200 Jewish American soldiers in a POW camp in Germany in 1945.
Pastor Edmonds serves as Senior Pastor of Piney Grove Baptist Church in Maryville, Tennessee and is the founder of Roddie’s Code, LLC, and The Roddie Edmonds Foundation; organizations committed to extending the legacy and leadership of Sergeant Edmonds to future generations. Pastor Edmonds is the author of NO SURRENDER: A Father, A Son, and an Extraordinary Act of Heroism That Continues to Live on Today. After the program Pastor Edmonds will be available to sign his book.
