Jon Avnet TV Movie Sneaks at Beverly Hills Temple

After a premiere earlier this week in journalist Mitch Albom‘s adopted hometown of Detroit, the November 27 ABC-TV Hallmark Hall of Fame adaptation of his latest book Have a Little Faith will be shown tonight at another most appropriate location—the Beverly Hills Temple of the Arts at the Saban Theatre.

In the movie, the larger-than-life Rabbi who interacts with Albom (Bradley Whitford) and Laurence Fishburne‘s reformed preacher is played by Martin Landau. In real life, the man who oversees the Wilshire Blvd. temple’s unique artistic approach to religion (and who will preside over a Shabbat service before tonight’s 9 p.m. screening) is Rabbi David Baron.

The movie was directed by Temple of the Arts member Jon Avnet, who is also currently readying content for his 2012 YouTube channel. Tonight’s free event is being co-sponsored by KABC 790 AM.
