Jewish Awareness Group Film - "The Women's Balcony"

Date: Friday, February 16, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Jewish Awareness Group is pleased to announce our latest offering, a movie for the times. The Women’s Balcony, a recent Israeli movie, tells the story of a devout religious community suddenly under pressure from a super Orthodox rabbi to observe their faith in a more rigid way. As reviewer Sheila O’Malley writes, “While the mood is that of a gentle and affectionate comedy, the film makes some extremely sharp points about fanaticism, sexism masked as holiness, and tolerance among the faithful.”

We will meet in the Library. Popcorn and juice will be served. For more information, please contact Merrilee Brand This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or at 416-690-3242.
