Thousands of European and Middle Eastern Jews sailed to Mexico looking for opportunity and to escape persecution in the early 20th century. A small group made their way to the border town of Tijuana.
Director Isaac Artenstein, who grew up in Tijuana, brings to life the history and legends of the Jewish-Mexican community that thrived in this town of ill repute from the Prohibition era to the present day.
Free to the public. Call (650) 483-1671 to reserve a ride in a carpool from Santa Cruz or Aptos.
