CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- On Sunday, the Federated Jewish Charities presents the free annual West Virginia Jewish Film Festival, a double feature with cheesecake and coffee at the Capitol Center Theater, 123 Summer St.
Opening at 7 p.m. is "Hava Nagila (The Movie)," in which filmmaker Roberta Grossman traces the 150-year history and meaning of the great Jewish standard in a film the San Francisco Chronicle called an "entertaining celebration."
At 8:15 p.m., see "A.K.A. Doc Pomus" about Brooklyn-born Jerome Felder who was paralyzed with polio as a child and went on to reinvent himself as first a blues singer and then as one of the most brilliant songwriters of the early rock and roll era, writing "Save the Last Dance for Me," and Viva Las Vegas," among other hits.
Arrive early for cheesecake and coffee starting at 6:30 p.m. For more information, call 304-380-4842.
