The Beetle
Yishai Orian, the director of this documentary film (55 minutes run-time) and the owner of an old Volkswagen beetle, is about to become a father. His mechanic says that the car will not last long, while his wife complains that the car is unsuitable for a baby. Attempting to keep his beloved car, Yishai goes on a journey that begins with the previous owners of the beetle, continues to Jordan to renovate the old car, and ends with the birth of his first child. The exciting, funny, sad, and intimate memories of the beetle’s previous owners blend with the director’s personal story.

Introduction and ‘Purim Dessert’
In the spirit of the upcoming holiday let’s get creative:
Bring your best homemade or store-bought dessert, other than Hamantashen, that best expresses “what Purim is all about.”
We’ll briefly introduce the film and vote for the best Purim dessert – the winner gets a Purim-suitable prize!
Temple Sinai has special permission from the director to screen this film. The link will be provided on Zoom.
We will sign off to watch the movie in our own homes, then get together again to discuss the film!
