Northern Exposure – The Best of Season 1

Sunday, December 25th from 12pm

Included with Admission – Buy Tickets Now!




Join us for a relaxing afternoon as we visit Cicely, Alaska. Inspired by Beyond Chicken Soup: Jews and Medicine in America, we will be screening the highest rated episodes from Season One of Northern Exposure, starting with the premiere episode. This cult TV show follows the life of recently graduated New York City physician, Dr. Joel Fleischman, who is sent to practice in Alaska to fulfill his obligation after Alaska paid for his medical education.


Throughout the screening we will be serving popcorn and hot chocolate.


The Episodes:


The Pilot – where else would we start but with the first introduction of our favorite fish-out-of-water Jewish doctor!


Brains, Know-How and Native Intelligence – Here we meet many of Cecily’s most colorful characters.


Russian Flu – accusations of spying, biological terrorism, and a visit from the back-home fiancée? An episode not to be missed.


Aurora Borealis: A Fairy Tale for Big People – the final episode of season one, the perfect place to end our relaxing day!

This important topic is one that is too often only discussed at the most challenging of times. Our panel of experts will discuss end-of-life care, including Jewish teachings and the contemporary legal landscape.
