The Cobbler

10% off for UKJF Members (promotional code: 2015ukjewishfilm)

“The strange sense of unreality and wall-to-wall klezmer-inspired score give it the feel of some long-lost Yiddish fairy tale.” Variety

Max Simkin (Adam Sandler) repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon an heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent), and starring Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman and Steve Buscemi, this supernatural parable has charm, beauty, and a gorgeous klezmer-infused score.

Above and Beyond

10% off for UKJF Members (promotional code: 2015ukjewishfilm)

In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help.

In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. This ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery, sacrifice and renewed Jewish pride.

This is their story.
