    7:30pm • Register (required) here: Registration Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0ode-gpzwqHNMrAgWIy847oogkB4MPSZ2A  Watch the film first on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, YouTube, ahead of time on your own and then join the group at 7:30pm for a conversation led by author Benjamin Taylor. From Bethlehem Hebrew Congregation: A film based on the novel of the same name by Philip Roth: Seymour “Swede” Levov comes of age just after World War II, in a thriving and triumphant America. A legendary high school athlete, the diligent and successful inheritor of his father’s glove factory, the proprietor of an eighteenth-century stone house in the heart of WASP country, the devoted husband of a beautiful and intelligent wife, and the father of a charming daughter, the Swede appears to have fulfilled the ambitions of generations of struggling forebears. But his carefully constructed life begins to collapse as he and America face the challenges of the turbulent sixties, and he sees his adored daughter, Merry, turn first into a rebellious adolescent and then into a revolutionary terrorist. As Swede Levov watches in bewilderment everything he treasures, everything so industriously created by his family over the course of three generations, is blown up by an angry girl’s bomb. American Pastoral is a wrenching and cathartic piece of work. It is a book about America: about loving and hating it, about wanting to belong and refusing to belong.

THE IMPOSSIBLE CLIMB
by MARK SYNNOTT

7pm • Whitney Community Center

In The Impossible Climb, Jackson’s own Mark Synnott uses his own career as a professional climber, its intersection with that of Alex Honnold and the lead-up to Honnold’s historic ascent, to paint a insider portrait of the elite climbing community, exploring what motivates them, the paradoxical drive to keep the sport pure and at the same time to fund climbs, and the role that awareness of mortality plays in the endeavour. We watch through Mark’s eyes as Alex plots, trains and attempts his heart-stopping free-solo ascent. Ultimately this is a story not only about climbing but about what makes us human, how we respond to fear and our drive to transcend the inevitability of death. This is the story which was also chronicled as a documentary in Free Solo.
