Join us for a live discussion with Tamar Manasseh from “They Ain’t Ready for Me” and director Brad Rothschild.
A force to be reckoned with, African-American rabbinical student Tamar Manasseh hits the streets in a grassroots effort to curb the senseless killings on the south side of Chicago. Tired of politicians’ inactions, the energetic Manasseh stakes out the corner of Englewood’s 75th and South Stewart Avenue, and attracts families and volunteers who meet, talk, play, laugh, enjoy a free meal and reclaim their treasured neighborhood.
Manasseh credits Judaism for instilling her sense of civic duty and strives to build bridges between her two worlds by organizing Passover dinners and Sukkot celebrations on the south side corner. This timely and inspiring portrait illuminates the power of individuals and communities to be a force for good when their institutions fail them.
