The Weinstein Jewish Community Center’s third annual Israeli Film Festival offers four movies that focus on various aspects of Jewish history and culture. “Violins in Wartime” tells the story of a violin-maker who attempts to teach music during the Second Lebanon War, and “Sima Vaknin Witch” is a comedy involving an older woman who discovers she has psychic powers and becomes famous overnight before getting in over her head. Also playing are “The Flat,” a documentary on director Arnon Goldfingers’ grandparents’ home in Tel Aviv where they lived since the 1930s, and “Mabul (the Flood),” in which 13-year-old Yoni quickly learns about life before his approaching bar mitzvah. The films showcased have been nominated for or won awards at festivals around the world, including the Tribeca Film Festival and the Haifa International Film Festival. The Israeli Film Festival takes place at the Weinstein JCC from Jan. 24-27. $8-$10 per film, or $28-$36 for all four. weinsteinjcc.org.
