The Jewish Values Scattered Around Schitt’s Creek

Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue

Schitt’s Creek is a classic fish-out-of-water tale with a Jewish soul. More than an example of what life is like in a small North American town, this show explores the meaning of family and community when life doesn’t turn out the way you planned.

Closed captioning will be available for this event.
