JCC: “The Boy” – Special Screening and Conversation Honoring Filmmaker Yahav Winner and Families of Israel’s South

Tue, Jan 16 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM



This event is hosted by Marlene Meyerson JCC. 

In memory of filmmaker Yahav Winner, who was killed on October 7 protecting his wife and young child, we are holding an evening honoring his life and work in Kibbutz Aza through film and conversation.

We will feature Yahav’s short film The Boy, which powerfully captures the experience of living on a kibbutz on the border of Gaza, a recorded interview with his grandfather, a Holocaust survivor living in Ashkelon, and testimony of Yahav’s wife Shaylee which is part of a new project to capture testimonies of those impacted by the October 7 attack.

We will then be joined live through video by members of his family in Israel for a conversation.

In partnership with B’nai Jeshurun, The New Yorker, The Claims Conference, Anshe Chesed, SAJ, Congregation, Kehilath Jeshurun, USC Shoah Foundation

Hebrew Institute of Riverdale – the Bayit, Romemu.

All proceeds will go to support efforts to support initiatives in the south in Israel for families affected by the events of October 7th.
