Screening and Discussion — Spaghetti & Matzo Balls: A True Story of The Mob, The Music & The Mishegas

Hosted By: The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ)

Just when you thought the Rao’s pasta sauce on your shelf didn’t lead to someone’s Jewish discovery, along comes Rena Strober’s “Spaghetti & Matzo Balls! A true story of The Mob, The Music & The Mishegas!”

Broadway & TV actress Rena Strober has teamed up with director Stuart K. Robinson to bring you Spaghetti & Matzo Balls!, a short film adapted from Rena’s hit off-Broadway show that New York Magazine called “warm, honest, funny, and engaging.”

The film focuses on the core story of how Rena rediscovered her Jewish roots – from the Catskills to Broadway to an infamous Italian restaurant in Spanish Harlem.

Tying into the High Holidays’ theme of personal reflection, we’re excited to host the virtual premiere of this film, followed by a conversation between Rena and Stuart during which they will take your questions.
