Thank you to everyone who participated and supported this year’s Festival.

With many newcomers having arrived in Peterborough and more to come in the future this year’s theme of ‘Welcoming the Stranger: The Refugee Experience’ was especially relevant.

The first film of the season will be on November 15, 2016 at Beth Israel Synagogue. The title of the film will be announced soon.

The 14th Annual Abraham Festival with return in 2017!
