A Joyous Fast to All ! 

 The Greek-American Historical Museum of Washington State presents:

SEPHARDIC JEWS IN THESSALONIKI
Dr. Devin Naar, University of Washington Professor of Sephardic Jewish Studies advises that the film “Cloudy Sunday,” set in Thessaloniki during World War II will be shown this coming Sunday, March 26 at 12:45 pm at the AMC Pacific Place as the Sephardic spotlight of the Seattle Jewish Film Festival. More details can be found here:

Forbidden romance buds between a Jewish girl and a young Christian resistance fighter in 1943 Thessaloniki (a.k.a Salonika or Salonica, Greece). Set against the suspenseful backdrop of German occupation, this beautifully rendered film adapted from a novel about love, the brutality of war, and painful decisions is made even more poignant by a soundtrack of enchanting Ladino classics and the wistful rebetika songs of the famous Greek composer Vassilis Tsitsanis. CLOUDY SUNDAY harkens to the days of old Thessaloniki and its thriving Sephardic Jewish culture and music scene.  (Sometimes your editor does wish he lived in Seattle : (  Looks like a good film and great music)
