“Art and Heart,” Catherine Tambini’s heartwarming, intellectually rewarding, and delicious retrospective documentary about Isaiah Sheffer — Yiddish maven, actor/writer/impresario and wit — had its sold out world premiere on January 14 at the Walter Reade Theatre. It was all part of the New York Jewish Film Festival, under the auspices of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Jewish Museum.
