Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
If you are ever looking for new, entertaining ways to convey Jewish values to your young family, these two short films should be strongly considered. Both are simple animated tales where Jami Gertz and Bob Saget are the narrators. You can easily imagine that these stories are told at a family gathering. The first story, Moishe's Miracle, makes you want to eat Latkes and is a delightful traditional folk tale. The second story, the Tie Man's Miracle, not only provides a story that pulls at your heart strings, but can also help you discuss with your young ones a very sensitive subject. It's wonderful to see both Jamie Gertz and Bob Saget take on performances that are very different in tone from some of their more famous roles. Jami Gertz's occasional departures into a Yiddish accent are charming.
