Acclaimed filmmaker Nancy Spielberg will address our event to discuss legacy.  The legacy of Jewish American WWII veterans in context of her recent film “Above and Beyond”, and the legacy she hopes to leave through her film making.

Synopsis: In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help. In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. This ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride. ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the ’48 War, ABOVE AND BEYOND brings together new interviews as well as stunning aerial footage to present a fascinating, little-known tale filled with heart, heroism and high-flying chutzpah.

The Children of the Covenant secures a sustainable future for our Congregation through legacy gifts that are pledged today, and provide a long term financial foundation. You can find more information on Children of the Covenant Here, or contact Dusty Heist-Levine at or (805) 964-7869 x104
