“Lies My Father Told Me” (1975)

Set in the 1920’s, “Lies My Father Told Me” follows David Herman (Jeffrey Lynas), a young boy whose worldview is being formed via the competing perspectives of his father (Len Birman), an inventor with a materialistic bent, and grandfather (Yossi Yadin), a tradition-loving immigrant who earns a meager living as a rag and scrap collector.

David’s grandfather schools him in patience and spiritual belief while taking the boy on weekly carriage rides behind his trusty horse, Ferdeleh. Over time, David instinctively finds his heart and soul being won over by the aged, persistently old-fashioned man.

 “Lies My Father Told Me” began as a short story by Ted Allan, who wrote it at the behest of The Canadian Jewish Chronicle. He based the narrative on his own upbringing in the largely Jewish St. Lawrence Boulevard section of Montreal.

Sponsored by the Israel Committee.
Pizza, pop, popcorn, and chips will be served.
