Turning 21 was a celebration at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts when the Simon Family JCC’s Virginia Festival of Jewish Film, presented by Howard and Alma* Laderberg, held its Opening Night on Saturday, Jan. 18. More than 350 people attended to see The Zigzag Kid.
After the film, the audience was treated to a beautifully decorated and delectable reception. Patricia and Avraham Ashkenazi sponsored opening night, Al Benas photographed the evening, Leslie Siegel and her crew decorated the party, The Village Caterers prepared food and drinks, and other sponsors of the film festival made Opening Night a tremendous success.
