THE CATHY AND MORRIS BART JEWISH CULTURAL ARTS SERIES - "The Women's Balcony"
Join us for a showing of the film "The Women's Balcony". 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.
