It went "beyond my wildest dreams" is all I can say about Rishon's first Cinema Club!   We had over 70 people attending to see "Ida's Dance Club." I couldn't believe it!
The lobby looked  wonderful, the food tables were set up elegantly by our volunteers, we had ESRA poster displays on the walls and the newest DVD of ESRA's projects playing on a TV screen throughout the reception.
