NHS held its first Pizza and a Movie night on Tuesday, beginning at 6:30 pm. NHS members and guests enjoyed a light supper of cheese pizza, salad, popcorn and cookies. Then the movie started at 6:45 pm.

The movie was "Kumaré", a feature documentary about filmmaker Vikram Gandhi's plan to impersonate a fake guru and how he built a following of real people. This film won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at SXSW 2011. It raised many issues of spirituality, belief and trust.

Rabbi David Siff led a spirited discussion after the movie about the nature of religion and how it satisfies a deep need in many people.
