Lifelong Learning | The New Jew: Guri Alfi and Moshe Samuels

Monday, December 12, 7:00 PM | CBI Sanctuary and Livestream

The New Jew

The Sacramento Jewish Film Festival, a program of the Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region; Congregation B’nai Israel; and the Consulate General of Israel, Pacific Northwest, are proud to sponsor The New Jew, a four-episode TV documentary series. The New Jew is presented by Guri Alfi, one of Israel’s most popular comedians, who embarks on a funny journey and opens his eyes to the seam and rift between the Jews in Israel and American Jewry. Guri Alfi is also the second cousin of Rabbi Mona Alfi. 

See Guri Alfi and his co-producer, Moshe Samuels, in person at CBI on Monday, December 12, and stream the series throughout December for $18 per household. (The December 12 event will also be livestreamed; no tickets required for livestream only.) For tickets and information, visit
