The Bender JCC is proud to present our 2017 Multifaith Film Fest in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington!
This celebration of faith features five award-winning films and will unfold over five nights, between March 22 – 26. All films will be shown in the Kreeger Auditorium.
Each film was carefully selected for its unique perspectives on identity and discovery, common social and spiritual values and, perhaps most importantly, the intersection of the human experience. They remind us that we are, in fact, not so different after all.
This film fest is the first of its kind in this community; crafted to promote peace, understanding and friendship among the many faith communities in Montgomery County.
We will celebrate our diversity while honoring our differences. We will embrace both the distinctive and common aspects of our customs. Our goal is to promote positive relationships between neighbors and build a greater appreciation for the teachings, customs, history and practices of our community’s faith traditions.
