Rabbi Simon will be joined by congregant and filmmaker George Siegal as he shares his most recent documentary with us. As we prepare for Sukkot in which we build temporary outdoor dwellings, “The Last House Standing” shows us a house that survived the storm when no others did and explores why we continue to place cost over safety while the technology exists to build homes capable of withstanding hurricanes, fires, and tornadoes.

The film will be shown via Zoom beginning at 6 PM, followed by a discussion at 7:30 PM. For those who can’t join us until 7:30, a link can be provided to view the film beforehand.

More information about the film can be found at www.thelasthousestanding.org.


George Siegal began his career in front of the camera as a newscaster, sportscaster, and weathercaster. He worked in markets from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Seattle, Detroit, and San Antonio, Texas. In addition to work in front of the camera, George was a feature reporter and producer.

In 2001 he formed J.E.L. Productions, a video production company that produces commercials, infomercials, television programs, and documentary films. The company also created its own original programming, which included a Texas Travel Program and a building and remodeling show.

George is most proud of his latest venture, forming the nonprofit documentary film company Move the World Films, Inc. He wrote, directed, and produced the award-winning documentary films The Last House Standing and License to Parent.

George, his wife Nancy, and their children are members of the temple.
