Charleston JCC teams up with the Terrace to present two Jewish documentaries throughout the month of September. Proceeds from the screenings benefit Holocaust educational programming in Charleston area schools. The first film, Marianne and Leonard: Words of Love, explores the love between Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen. Filmmaker Nick Broomfield chronicles the relationship between Cohen and his Norwegian muse, from their early days in Greece to when Cohen became a successful musician. The other flick of the run (please note that all movies run simultaneously throughout their stretch at the Terrace, peep the schedule online), The Spy Behind Home Plate, is a documentary about Morris “Moe” Berg, a Jewish catcher who spied for the U.S. Berg caught and fielded in the major leagues during the 1920s and 1930s and later spied in Europe, “playing a prominent role in America’s efforts to undermine the German atomic bomb program during WWII.” The Charleston Jewish Community Center Without Walls seeks to offer diverse and inclusive programming through a Jewish lens.
