JxJ film club is back with the inspiring documentary Space Torah!

In 1996, NASA astronaut Dr. Jeff Hoffman brought a small Torah scroll on board Space Shuttle Columbia. On Shabbat, while orbiting Earth, he read from the book of Genesis, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” This is a story about inspiration, communities, and a man’s journey. A story of how family, educators, scientific, and religious communities achieve great things and bring our identity to new realms.

Screening followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker Rachel Raz and a NASA expert!

Complimentary wine and beer at the post-film screening, ticket includes 1 drink and film screening.
