The trailer for “The Green Prince,” screening at Congregation B’nai Israel later this month with a kosher lunch.
It’s preceded by “a delicious, kosher Israeli lunch,” according to a press release — and it’s followed by a discussion of the substantial issues raised within its 101-minute running time. It’s the feature-length documentary The Green Prince, and it’s coming to the greater Green for a single screening hosted at Congregation B’nai Israel in Rumson.
The doll’s fictional backstory is that she’s the American-born daughter of Russian immigrants living on New York’s Lower East Side in 1914. And for some of the real girls in attendance, the event was an occasion to dress up like Rebecca, while others emulated different dolls in the American Girl line, including a Nez Perce Native American doll named Kaya from 1764.

American Girl character Rebecca Rubin invites kids ages 6 and up to a special Tea Party at Rumson’s Congregation B’nai Israel.
As the Jewish Daily Forward put it in 2013, “today’s most famous Jewish character is 18 inches tall” — and on November 16, Rebecca Rubin casts a big profile as the special guest of honor for an American Girl Tea Party event at Congregation B’nai Israel in Rumson.
For the 11:45 am event that commemorates Jewish Book Month, children ages 6 and up are being invited to “bring your favorite doll to meet Rebecca Rubin” at a get-together that includes a light lunch, beverage, dessert, crafts and puzzles. While the tea party is a week away, seating is limited, and attendees are being urged to RSVP no later than this coming Wednesday, November 12.
