¨ TODAY! FRI Nov 22, 6:30p: Friday Films! ~ 6:30p Dinner, 7:30p film: When Do We Eat?  a 2006 film about Strict patriarch Ira Stuckman (Michael Lerner) experiences the heights of the Jewish faith  — literally — after being slipped  some Ecstasy during the family’s Passover Seder meal. The once-gruff and critical Ira embraces the spirit of the holiday, vowing to guide his contentious clan toward forgiveness and harmony. Jack Klugman co-stars in director Salvador Litvak’s over-the-top dysfunctional domestic comedy. Hilarious and Rabbi Dan approved!
