Join us in the Land of Milk and Funny!
We are proud to present an additional, very special Philadelphia premiere of LAND OF MILK AND FUNNY on Sunday, September 22, 2 PM at the National Museum of American Jewish History. Through the fusion of fresh material, poignant storytelling, and often irreverent humor, this hilarious documentary comedy follows comedian Avi Liberman and his friends (including The Office co-star Craig Robinson) as they travel to the Holy Land to perform the funniest stand-up. You love Israel? You love stand-up? You won’t want to miss this!
Even more, Avi himself will introduce the film and follow the screening with a live set and audience Q&A!

Fall Fest 2019 Sponsorship Opportunities Are Here Today!
Hot town, summer in the city! While summer is on your mind, fall is all the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (GPJFF) is thinking about. Not only do we want you to save the date for our upcoming 39th Fall Festival this November, we want you to become a sponsor today!
The Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival is more than just a place to see a movie. GPJFF is a shared experience that nurtures the exploration of Jewish culture, heritage, and values through film. It’s also a community that appreciates the value in preserving Jewish stories – stories that root us in our humanity, make us laugh and cry, and enhance our lives by instilling meaning and purpose.
