An accident during a bar mitzvah leads to a conflict in an Orthodox community in Jerusalem in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power. A charismatic young Rabbi appears to be a savior, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways, testing the women’s friendships and creating a rift between the community’s women and men.
Join Rabbi Lila Kagedan, of the Walnut Street Synagogue in Chelsea, for a discussion following the screening.
Includes coffee and dessert.
