Warner Brothers: The Making of an American Movie Studio

Film critic and historian David Thomson brings us behind the scenes at the legendary Warner Brothers film studio, where four immigrant brothers transformed themselves into the moguls and masters of American fantasy.

The Warner Brothers — Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack — arrived in America as unschooled Jewish immigrants, and founded an unpromising film studio that became the smartest, toughest and most radical in all of Hollywood.

David Thomson provides original interpretations of Warner Brothers pictures from the pioneering talkie The Jazz Singer through black-and-white musicals, gangster movies and such dramatic romances as CasablancaEast of Eden and Bonnie and Clyde. He recounts the storied exploits of the studio’s larger-than-life stars, among them Al Jolson, James Cagney, Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean, Doris Day and Bugs Bunny. The Warner brothers’ cultural impact was so profound, Thomson writes, that their studio became “one of the enterprises that helped us see there might be an American dream out there.”

The Death of Rabbi Akiva

The Death of Rabbi Akiva

Prepare for Yom Kippur by exploring the story of Rabbi Akiva, the greatest figure of the early rabbinic period. Rabbi Akiva died a martyr's death at the hands of the Romans in the early years of the second century of the Common Era. His death--with the Shema on his lips--became the model for martyrs throughout Jewish history, and his story is even included in poetic form in the traditional liturgy for Yom Kippur.

We will look at the early sources that tell of Akiva's death and explore the enduring underlying themes of his biography as they are expressed in the last moments of his life. Copies of Dr. Holtz's recently published Rabbi Akiva: Sage of the Talmud will be available for purchase and signing.
