Coming soon: Steinhardt festival


Hedge fund manager and champion of Jewish culture Michael Steinhardt has become a major sponsor of the upcoming Brooklyn Jewish Film Festival. The event will feature classic flicks ranging from the Marx Brothers' 1935 "Night at the Opera" to the 1973 French-language "Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob." The Steinhardt-backed film festival will also show more contemporary narratives, including a mockumentary about Jewish country singer Kinky Friedman. The three-day event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music is entitled: "Too Cool For Shul: Steinhardt Jewish Heritage Festival."
