Legacy: The Levine Family

July 12, 2018, 4:30 PM6:30 PM

A documentary showing how a recent family reunion is the opportunity for a Jewish family, with ancestors from Lithuania/Poland, who settled in Waterville, Maine over 100 years ago, to examine the cultural values that have passed on through the generations, and to discover the meaning of those ethics and values today. Through an honoring ceremony at Waterville’s synagogue, several members of the Levine family explore the history of the founders of Levine’s Store, a large clothing store that had been in business for 107 years. As well as documenting the central role of the store in the Waterville community, the film also highlights the role of women working in the family as keepers of the culture. Legacy conveys the family’s contributions to the building and enrichment of community, and in so doing, tells the story of small town America’s growth through immigration.
