Kung Pao Xmas: Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas
Tuesday, December 25, dinner at 5 pm  | movie at 5:45 pm 
SJCC, 3801 East Mercer Way

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…”, “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…”—who knew that some of the best loved Christmas carols were written by Jewish songwriters. This musical documentary celebrates the amazing story of Jewish composers such as Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, and Jay Livingston, who composed the indelible, mainstream pop-culture soundtrack to Christmas.
