Fanny’s Journey
September 17th

In 1943, 13 year old Fanny, and her younger sister were sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive, their caretakers desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland.  Suddenly, left on their own, these 11 children do the impossible and reach the Swiss border to freedom. This is based on a true story.

 

Doing Jewish
October 1st

Doing Jewish tells the fascinating story of the residents of a small Ghanaian community who learn that they have been practicing aspects of Judaism for centuries. The rich heritage and commitment of these community members is captivating for modern Jewry both because of the links to our ancient religion and the questions that arise for the future viability of this and other dispersed communities.

 

The Women’s Balcony
October 15th

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.
