Throughout history, religious institutions have formed the bedrock of American communities, but today they are losing members and closing doors at an alarming rate. In this preview screening of Restoring Tomorrow, Aaron Wolf shares a personal journey of rediscovery by telling the story of a Los Angeles treasure, Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Built by the original Hollywood moguls, the temple came near demise, but became determined to achieve the impossible—raise $150 million to restore its majesty and vibrancy, rebuilding the Jewish community, the greater Los Angeles community—and on a personal level, Wolf himself. Discussion with director Aaron Wolf
