Monday Night at the Midway Movies is one of Midway Jewish Center’s finest Adult Education programs, though it doesn’t quite feel like one. People gather not just to watch great movies, but also to view and review them with Jewish eyes. What are the themes that run through these movies and how do they relate to Jewish values? Alternatively, what values might they actually violate? All films are shown at 7:30 p.m., with English subtitles for anyone with listening challenges. Admission is free and the public is welcome. The Help, set in the 1960’s, tells the story of what working for a white family would look like if told from the perspective of the black maid. PG-13, 146 minutes.

Members and guests of North Shore Synagogue’s Brotherhood BBQ and Erev Shabbat Service enjoyed a wonderful summer’s evening in early July with a classic BBQ and services led by Brotherhood, with help from Rabbi Jaimee Shalhevet and Cantor Rich Pilatsky.
“This is a wonderful way to connect with other members of Brotherhood, which focuses on building camaraderie among our members, and instilling a strong sense of community away from the hectic pressures of our day-to-day lives,” said Brotherhood co-president Jeffrey Levine.

Susan Sears of Port Jefferson runs an ongoing series of science classes aimed at stimulating the growing minds of children. Recently, she was holding one of them at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library on Roller Coaster design, which she described as “a physics lesson disguised as fun.”
