WEST ORANGE, NJ - The New Jersey Jewish Film festival will be hosting a screening of  “THE TESTAMENT” — an award-winning Israeli film about a man seeking personal and historical truths about the Holocaust — Saturday, Feb. 3, at 8 p.m. at the JCC in West Orange.

In the film, Yoel, a senior Holocaust researcher, is engaged in a legal battle with powerful forces concerning a massacre of Jews in an Austrian village. During his investigation, Yoel examines classified evidence given by survivors and to his shock finds testimony from his mother in which she confesses an astonishing secret. Trapped between Holocaust deniers and his mother's hidden past, Yoel is a man who is willing to risk everything to discover the truth.

Tickets for “The Testament” cost $15 in advance, $17 at the door, $13 for seniors and students, free for film festival sponsors. To purchase tickets, visit Boxofficeticket.com/jccmetrowest; tickets may be purchased at the theater starting 45 minutes prior to screening, subject to availability.
