Opening Night of the 24th Annual Donald M. Ephraim
Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival



PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. (January 27, 2014) --- More than 1,000 film enthusiasts attended the opening night of the 24th Annual Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival on January 16, 2014, at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, Fla. The evening featured the documentary “When Comedy Went To School,” a nostalgic look at the birth of stand-up comedy. Donald Ephraim, for whom the festival was recently renamed, was honored prior to the screening. Special guests included Dick Capri, a well-known comedian, and Arnold Graham, a talent agent and producer for shows on and off Broadway. 


“There was a palpable excitement in the air at the opening night. I became more involved in the festival to expand the love of film and Jewish culture in our community. My hope is that more people are exposed to the magic of film through this 11-day festival,” said Donald Ephraim, the new namesake of the largest Jewish film festival in Florida.

Prior to the film, there was a private reception for members of The Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Society and the film’s sponsors in the Cohen Pavilion of the Kravis Center. Opening night of the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival was sponsored by U.S. Bank. The festival was renamed this year following a $1 million dollar legacy gift from TheDonald M. Ephraim Family Foundation.


The film festival, the largest Jewish Film Festival in Florida, runs Jan. 16 to 26, 2014, and features 58 screenings of 39 films at four theatres from Delray Beach to Palm Beach Gardens. Sandra and Bernie Meyer serve as the festival chairs.
