American Jerusalem: Jews and the Making of San Francisco is the epic story of the pioneering Jews of San Francisco. Escaping persecution in Europe, these Jews played a central role in transforming San Francisco from a sleepy village into a thriving metropolis. In the process, they reinvented themselves as well, becoming a distinctly new kind of Jew: a San Francisco Jew. A Q&A with executive producer Jackie Krentzman follows the screening. (2013, 55 min. No MPAA rating.)

I got offered a part in a Christmas movie over the summer. It’s called “Defending Santa” and stars Dean Cain, Jud Tylor and my movie wife, Jodie Sweetin, best known for playing Stephanie on “Full House.” REMOVE
Shmuel Tikvah, a young Nigerian, heard time and time again about the Igbo people, who claim descent from ancient Israelites. Research at an Internet cafe leads him on a quest to find this Nigerian Jewish community, which keeps kosher, lights Shabbat candles and prays in Hebrew.
