HOLIDAY FILM FOR FAMILIES
A Christmas Story
Sunday, December 22 and 29*
Noon, 1:30, 3 pm, Cantor auditorium
Once a year, at Christmas, an orphaned boy named Nikolas moves to a new home in his village. To show his gratitude, he makes toys for the children of his adoptive families. At thirteen, he is sent to live and work with a grumpy old man, who forbids the gift-giving. Thankfully, Nikolas comes up with a solution that brings children joy every Christmas, even until today. Click here for more information.
