Phillip Roth, one of the great Jewish writers of our generation passed away this year. Temple Beth Sholom is paying tribute to him with a film series based on some of his classic books. Our Retrospective kicks off with "Goodbye Columbus" on Tuesday October 16th at 7:00 p.m.
Neil Klugman (Richard Benjamin), a young librarian in New Jersey, has eyes for Brenda Patimkin (Ali MacGraw), a beautiful Radcliffe student. Although they are both Jewish, Brenda’s family is much wealthier and more conservative than Neil’s. As there relationship matures, their differing cultural backgrounds cause Brenda’s mother (Nan Martin) to have trepidations about the couple. As their disparate ideas about sex and birth control come to the fore, their feelings for each other are tested. Film will be screened at Temple Beth Sholom 4144 Chase Ave. Miami Beach 33140
