TBS' Jewish Cultural and Education Committee presents....

New York Times & Los Angeles Times CRITICS PICK!
Israel's #1 Film of the Year!

An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a gender rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem, in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power.
When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi’s wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates an almost Lysistrata-type rift between the community’s women and men.
Come see this film on our brand new state-of-the-art media system! Suggested donation of $5 per person. There will be popcorn and drinks available for purchase. We will be using our new popcorn machine!
