"A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" Screening

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM <Add to Calendar>

Join JUF Young Families and JUF Education as we watch and discuss the film,
"A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" as a community. Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.
