Israeli Film Series – Group Discussion

April 25, 2024    
7:15 pm - 8:00 pm

With Israel on our minds and hearts, we invite you to deep dive into wider cultural, historical, and aesthetic contexts of the region through the medium of contemporary narrative film. Led by Rabbi Slakman, the selected films will uplift directors with diverse identities, and realities that span political, social, and religious spectrums. Titles will be released at the beginning of each month and a discussion will take place from 7:15 – 8:00 p.m. over Zoom on the final Thursday of the month to raise questions, reactions, and reflections in community. 

Films are available through a variety of streaming services for a low cost (e.g. Amazon, Tubi, Netflix, Israel Film Center Stream, ChaiFlicks). Please plan on independently finding, purchasing, and streaming prior to each discussion session.

Note that these films contain mature content and viewer discretion is advised.
