To celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut (Israel’s Independence Day) the Jewish Federation of NEPA screened the upbeat film “HUMMUS: the movie” on Thursday evening May 9, 2019, in the Linder Room of the Scranton JCC.
All in attendance loved the film with its joyous message of unity among Israeli Jews, Christians and Arabs in celebrating (and taking ownership of) the delicious superfood Hummus! There even was the continuing quest for the Guinness World Book record for the largest bowl of Hummus in the world.
The Federation enhanced the hummus theme with a hummus bar of assorted flavored genuine hummus with crudité and crackers as well as Israeli pastry and blue and white cookies.
The DVD is now part of the Federation’s Jewish film library.
Happy 71st birthday to the modern State of Israel from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
