Jewish Soldier in Blue and Gray - Lafayette Theatre Suffern NY

 The Jewish Community Center of Rockland County is hosting its first ever Jewish Cultural Arts Festival.  As part of the festival  and corresponding with the 150th anniversary of the Civil war, it will be showing the documentary film Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray.  

 

Over 10,000 Jews participated in the civil war, whether fighting on the side of the union or as part of the confederates.  The film outlines the history of the Jews during the civil war and the sacrifices they made defending their country, whether their allegiance was with the union or the confederacy.  It also tells of the little known  decision of Ulyssis S. Grant to expel the Jews. 
 
Military historian,  Shalom E. Lamm,  will be the featured speaker at the event with discussion to follow.
The film will be shown tonight, Thursday November 10 at 7 PM at the Lafayette Theatre in Suffern, NY.
Tickets for the showing are $12 and $9 for students and seniors.
For more information you can visit www.jccrockland.org or call 845-362-4400.

Leah- I wonder if it's been shown down here.  I think it would be interesting and I know that I have more than a few friends who would love to see it.

Leah....I wish I lived near you!  I was a history major & the trailer is right....this is left out of the history books as it was all new to me.  Thank you so much for sharing.  I'm going to post the link on my facebook page.  I would like to see the entire documentary!

Kathy - I'm kicking myself that I won't be able to go see it this evening as I've got another commitment.

Christine - It was all news to me too.  Wonder what else they left out of those history books.

Leah - sounds like such an interesting program; I wish I could be there too. I was a history major too and I don't remember hearing that about Grant's expelling the Jews.
