Challah Rising in the Desert celebrates the history and people of New Mexico's unique Jewish community. Braided challah represents five waves of settlement of this community including Conversos escaping the Spanish Inquisition 400 years ago, German Jewish pioneers of the Santa Fe Trail in the 1800's, scientists at Los Alamos in the 1940's and the counterculture of the 1960's.
Requested donation of $5.00 per person, but all are welcome to the movie and to taste some authentic New Mexican Jewish cuisine.
Donations go to support future JCC movies and speakers.
