“2ND NIGHT: NOT YOUR ZAYDE’S SEDER!”
Trying to figure out how to compete with night one of a family-filled seder? Grab your zayde and get it right the second night with Temple Judea’s celebration filled with food, music, four famous questions and the “prince of kosher gospel,” Joshua Nelson.

“WHILE WE’RE YOUNG”
Married couple Josh and Cornelia are living a childless, New York, middle-aged life. As their other friends settle into their lives as parents, the couple gravitates toward a young hipster couple, Jamie and Darby. Directed by Noah Baumbach (“Frances Ha”) and starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried, the film is an honest and fun look at adolescence at any age, and the journeys that some people decide to take together, for better or worse. Hip-hop dance scenes and social paranoia included. Various times. At theaters citywide.
