'SPEED SISTERS' SCREENING
New York, 7 p.m.
A screening of "the Speed Sisters" will be held in the Old Chatham Quaker Meetinghouse, 539 County Route 13, Old Chatham, NY, across from Pitt Hall Road and Powell House. A potluck will precede the film at 6 p.m. The "Speed Sisters" are the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. A moderated discussion will follow. For more information call 518-766-2992.

FILM: “DREAMING OF A JEWISH CHRISTMAS”
Amherst, 2 p.m.
“Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas” is an offbeat, irreverent musical documentary telling the story of a group of Jewish songwriters, including Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, Jay Livingston, and Gloria Shayne Baker among others, who wrote the soundtrack to Christianity’s most musical holiday. It’s an amazing tale of immigrant outsiders who became irreplaceable players in pop culture’s mainstream.

SHORT FILMS: “MANDALA BEATS” AND “JOE’S VIOLIN”
Amherst, 2 - 3:30 p.m.
Join the Yiddish Book Center's screening of two short films:  “Mandala Beats”  Known as the Jimi Hendrix of bass guitar, Israeli bassist and producer Yossi Fine has recorded and produced music with artists from across the globe, including Lou Reed and David Bowie. Learning of Indian roots in his family, Fine departs on a journey of rediscovery. Encountering a world of Jewish music in India, Fine performs with Israeli musicians Shye Ben Tzur and Gil Ron Shama in some of the country’s holiest places. In her first feature-length documentary, Canadian filmmaker Rebekah Reiko offers a lively and joyous musical journey. “Joe’s Violin” In the award-winning short documentary film “Joe’s Violin,” a donated musical instrument forges an improbable friendship between 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Joe Feingold and 12-year-old Bronx school girl Brianna Perez, showing how the power of music can bring light in the darkest of times and how a small act can have a great impact.
