Hadassah Film Festival

Come down to the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library auditorium at 1 p.m. March 18 for a film festival featuring Twin Sisters. The film tells the story of twin German sisters, Lotte and Anna, separated at a young age. After the death of their parents, they are “divided” between quarreling distant relatives, one being raised in the Netherlands and the other in Germany. As well as a national difference, they also undergo a sharp class differentiation. Lotte is raised by a rather affluent, middle-class intellectual family in Amsterdam, Anna by a poor Catholic peasant family in a backward area, where in the 1930s the Nazi Party seems to offer young people the only chance of social mobility.

News

Oyster Bay Town officials are mulling an override of the state’s 2 percent property tax cap for the second consecutive fiscal year. On Aug. 12, the town held a hearing to approve local legislation, giving the Town Council authority to pierce the cap.

However, according to Marta Kane, a spokesperson with the Town of Oyster Bay, Supervisor John Venditto and the members of the Oyster Bay Town Council are not certain if they will entertain a repeat of last year, when the board adopted a $277 million budget, increasing the tax levy by $15,964,647 — or 8.8 percent.

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.
