As part of the Teaneck International Film Festival, the Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women is remembering Jane Abraham, the beloved co-president who died in March, by co-sponsoring “Ask for Jane.” The movie will be shown on Sunday, November 17, at 7:30 p.m., at Temple Emeth in Teaneck. It will be followed by a talkback moderated by Sandi Klein, creator of the podcast “Conversations with Creative Women” and a former WINS radio anchor, featuring director/writer Rachel Carey; producer/writer/actress Cait Cortelyou; activist Heather Booth; and award-winning author and journalist Angela Bonavoglia. WOW Women of the Year awards will be presented to Jane Abraham posthumously for her contributions to NCJW BCS, Bergen READS, and Age-Friendly Teaneck; and to Eva Tobias, a dedicated activist and volunteer. For more information on the Teaneck International Film Festival, go to teaneckfilmfestival.org or call (201) 203-1723.
