NYT Film Critic A.O. Scott headlines “Taste of Honey”

A Taste of Honey, the 19th annual community-wide celebration of Jewish learning, will be held Saturday, Jan. 31, 7-11 p.m. at the Greater New Haven Jewish Community Center, 360 Amity Rd. in Woodbridge.

This year, in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this year’s event will feature New York Times film critic A.O. Scott, who will discuss “Between Memory and Imagination: Paradoxes of the Holocaust on Film.” Scott has been a film critic at The New York Times since 2000 and a frequent contributor to the paper’s Magazine and Book Review. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in criticism in 2010 and in 2014 was appointed Distinguished Professor of Film Criticism at Wesleyan University. In 2016 Penguin Press will publish his book Better Living Through Criticism.

The event will also feature dozens of other thought-provoking topics and discussions, including a Debbie Friedman Tribute Concert with the Temple Emanuel Band from Orange, and a cooking class with Avi Szapiro, chef and restaurateur of ROIA New Haven.
