Community Happenings

There Was No Silence movie logo

On Thursday night, September 5th we will be showing the Premier of the movie "There was No Silence" at 7:30 pm at the Lafayette Theater in Suffern.

Please join us and buy your tickets today. This film is directed by local filmmaker Joe Allen and it will inspire you! Details are below and more information can be found at www.therewasnosilence.com.

"There Was No Silence" is a documentary about JCC Rockland's efforts to get a minute of silence for the 11 Israeli athletes murdered at the Munich Olympics in 1972. Timed to premiere on the 47th anniversary of the Munich massacre and less than a year before the Tokyo Olympics.

"There Was No Silence" celebrates the power of never giving up, the importance of communities standing up for what is right and how JCC Rockland's effort made a world-wide impact and created change.
