Midway Movies: The Help

Monday Night at the Midway Movies is one of Midway Jewish Center’s finest Adult Education programs, though it doesn’t quite feel like one. People gather not just to watch great movies, but also to view and review them with Jewish eyes. What are the themes that run through these movies and how do they relate to Jewish values? Alternatively, what values might they actually violate? All films are shown at 7:30 p.m., with English subtitles for anyone with listening challenges. Admission is free and the public is welcome. The Help, set in the 1960’s, tells the story of what working for a white family would look like if told from the perspective of the black maid. PG-13, 146 minutes.

Free Pet Lecture

Pet owners are invited to attend a free lecture on Monday, March 4 at 7:45 p.m. by pharmacist Paul Schimel entitled “Simplifying Your Pets’ Medication Needs.” The lecture is hosted by Long Island Cat Fanciers, Inc. and will be held at Syosset-Woodbury Community Center, located at 7900 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury; there will be free refreshments.

News

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
