Remembering the Righteous

A Polish farmer saved filmmaker Menachem Daum's father and two uncles from the Holocaust by hiding them for two years in a pit dug under his haystack. Daum filmed his family's journey to meet this Righteous Gentile's family, the result of which is the movie, "Hiding and Seeking: Faith and Tolerance After the Holocaust." Rabbi Harold Schulweis of Valley Beth Shalom screens the first-run film Wednesday evening, with a discussion to follow.

7 p.m. $5. Light refreshments will be served. 15739 Ventura Blvd., Encino. (818) 788-6000.
