Film Screening: Challah Rising in the Desert – The Jews of New Mexico
August 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Film screenings are back at HCRJ! On Sunday, August 8 at 2pm, visit the temple to watch Challah Rising in the Desert: The Jews of New Mexico!
This film celebrates the history and people of New Mexico’s unique Jewish community. Braided challah bread represents five waves of settlement of New Mexico’s Jewish community including Conversos escaping the Spanish Inquisition 400 year ago, German Jewish pioneers of the Santa Fe Trail in the 1800s, scientists of the 1940s and the counterculture of the 1960s. Challah Rising is a moving tapestry of the Jewish experience woven into New Mexico’s unique history and landscape.
