A moving comedy about simple people in the city of Tiberius “The world is funny”. Director: Shemi Zarhin (2012)

Breakfast, movie and a short discussion! Sunday the 10th 10:00 am, at CAI center

Before you watch the movie you should know something about the “HaGashash HaHiver”. “HaGashash HaHiver” was an Israeli comedy group. Often called HaGashashim (The Trackers), they are considered a classic of Israeli entertainment and the most influential comedy act in the history of Israel.

 

The Gashashim put on many stage comedy shows, consisting of skits which became classics and contributed numerous quotes to modern spoken Hebrew. For example: “the world is funny so we laugh”.

 

The movie the “world is funny” uses the Gashashim as a background story. A famous skit is about the city Tiberius where the movie takes place and One of the main caricatures is an obsessed fan of the Gashashim.

Presidential Address / Rosh Hashanah Speech 2013

“Who remembers the TV show “The A Team”?  It can’t be just me… Anyway, it was popular, in the 1980’s. Action, explosions, save the good guy… At some point in every show, Captain “Hannibal” Smith would say, “I love it when a plan comes together!”

That is how I am feeling about our community. We have had a plan for almost 100 years now, to be a spiritual place of worship, a place of learning, a gathering place for friends and family. A place committed to deepening the quality of Jewish life in Saskatoon and district… To quote our well-written mission statement…”
