Jews of the Wild West with Aspen Film

JOIN Israel and Aspen Film hosted a sold-out screening of the documentary film Jews of the Wild West on Wednesday, August 23rd.

The film tells the story of the largely forgotten history of Jewish pioneers in the American West. It features interviews, archive footage, and historical photographs to tell the stories of these trailblazers.

The event began with a reception at Casterline | Goodman Contemporary Art Gallery.

There was a Q&A with the film maker and five-time Emmy award winner, Amanda Marshall Kinsey. As well as founder of The Temple Israel Foundation, William Korn. The panel was moderated by the Executive + Artistic Director of Aspen Film, Susan Wrubel.
