MIBB is a proud co-sponsor of the Lenore Marwil Jewish Film Festival, featuring the Israeli film On The Map. The film's director will speak after the movie at the Berman Theater of the JCC in West Bloomfield, Michigan.

The JCC’s Lenore Marwil Jewish Film Festival is one of the largest Jewish Film Festivals in the Midwest, and we are committed to bringing the highest quality films to our community.  We offer a diverse cinema experience in our annual festival and throughout the year. We also provide a forum for discussion about films from around the world that illuminate Jewish issues and principles. Our goal is to enhance a sense of community and inclusion for a broad range of audience members.

By working with community members, experts, local organizations and other festival supporters, we create a vibrant two weeks each spring that will lift spirits, educate, and create a platform for dialogue. Through much laughter and perhaps a few tears, we invite you to join us on our festival adventure and step into the world of Jewish Film Festival cinema.

On The Map
An unforgettable upset victory by the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team against a Cold War adversary is exhilaratingly recounted in On The Map.

Demoralized by the Yom Kippur War, the Munich massacre, and its sagging economy, Israel was hungry for a collective triumph as it pursued the 1977 European Championship Tournament. Facing impossible odds, the underdog Maccabi Tel Aviv team, comprised of Israeli players and NBA also-rans, is matched up against the powerhouse Soviets in the semifinals. In a David-and-Goliath battle, the Israelis topple the four-time defending Soviet champs, and in doing so, rally a nation. The so-called “Miracle on Hardwood” is thrillingly related by team captain and Israeli basketball hero Tal Brody, NBA great Bill Walton, former NBA Commissioner David Stern, and former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, along with other observers from the sports and political worlds.

Offering a courtside seat to the pulse-pounding action, On The Map celebrates a watershed moment of glory that many Israelis still regard as their nation’s greatest sports achievement.
