New Jersey Jewish Film Festival: Delegation

Date: Thursday, April 11
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm (EDT)

Delegation dramatizes a common Israeli rite of passage: a high school class trip to Holocaust memorial sites in Poland before teenagers begin their IDF service. On this particular trip, shy boy Frisch, aspiring artist Nitzan, and class heartthrob Ido struggle with love, friendship, and politics in the crucible of a busy itinerary through traumatic history. Their experiences are both universally teenage and uniquely Israeli.

Delegation will be preceded by Yiddish Mean Girls (2023; Dylan Seders Hoffman; 3 minutes), which inventively restages the iconic split-screen telephone call from Mean Girls in Yiddish, blurring the lines between our recent and more distant cultural pasts.

We support and #StandWithIsrael as we continue to build a strong Jewish community here in NJ
