The Jewish Center and Federation of the Twin Tiers is both a Jewish Center and a Jewish Federation. Its center arm operates as a “JCC without walls,” offering programs both in the building it shares with Congregation Kol Ami and at other locations. Its federation arm raises philanthropic funds and distributes them both directly and through the Jewish Federations of North America.

The JCF’s September film will be The Cakemaker. It centers on a gay German baker who, after his married Israeli lover is killed in a car accident, travels to Israel and covertly becomes part of his lover’s widow’s life. She runs a small café, for which he starts baking. Although not fully kosher, his delicious cakes turn the place into a city attraction. Finding himself involved in Anat's life in a way far beyond his anticipation, he stretches his lie to a point of no return.
Although the film is not rated in the U.S., Canada rated it as suitable for ages 14 and older, and Australia rated it for mature audiences.
