Jewish Family Service Goes to the Movies


On August 14 the Jewish Family Service of the Lithuanian Jewish Community hosted a wonderful outing for children. The Forum Cinema of Vilnius has been showing different animated films for children with discounted prices for groups of children. The Jewish Family Service decided to make use of the opportunity and Sunday morning parents and children attended a showing of the Little Prince. Although it is an animated film based on moral values for children, the parents were also able to take some real insights away from the experience. Twenty-eight program participants took part and the program coordinator said it was a great success.

“This is a way to spend some very meaningful time and it also compels thinking and discussing the film viewed,” one mother who took part said.

The program coordinator plans more such trips to movies, selected by hand and heart.
