Shalom Y’All Documentary Film and Discussion
Presented by: Les Bergen, Retired engineer and federal financial professional; treasurer, Southern Jewish Historical Society; lecturer and guide for the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington
This will be a very special program exploring Jewish identity and Jewish community in the South. What does it mean to be a Southern Jew? Traveling in an old Cadillac, the kind that his 100-year-old grandfather drove as a hat salesman on the same roads, Shalom Y’All’s filmmaker, a third-generation Southern Jew from New Orleans, takes us along on his journey to discover his cultural roots, passing through 4,200 miles of Delta flatlands, coastal low country, mountain passes, small towns, suburban subdivisions, and sprawling sunbelt cities. What he finds is a vibrant regional culture blending aspects of the old and the new South. Following the film, Les Bergen, treasurer of the Southern Jewish Historical Society and a native son of Charlotte, North Carolina, will lead us in a discussion about the Southern Jewish experience.
