The corner of Allen, Broome and Janina
With Jewish film festival season in full swing in New York these days, it’s pretty hard to choose when and where to experience good Jewish cinema. While I haven’t seen any of the films listed at “Mezedes” – The 4th annual Greek-Jewish Film Festival, I’m sure a trip to Congregation Kehila Kadosha Janina, the oldest Romaniote synagogue in New York City, is in order.
