As part of their exhibition “Celebrate San Diego: The History and Heritage of San Diego’s Jewish Community,” the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park is screening a special film next month.
“To The Ends of the Earth: A Portrait of Jewish San Diego,” is a documentary based on more than 50 interviews and includes descendants of early Jewish pioneers, scientists, entrepreneurs, academics, artists, rabbis and even surfers.
The film is a collaboration between Cinewest Productions and the San Diego History Center, and filmmaker Isaac Artenstein depicts a portrait of a 150-year strong, culturally vibrant community thriving in San Diego.
The film is screening at the Museum of Photographic Arts next to the History Center on Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. and tickets are $15.
The exhibition will remain at the History Center through May 20.
