Israeli Film Series: The Women’s Balcony
Nov 12 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

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. Read more.

Israeli Book Club: A Good Place for the Night (short stories) by Savyon Liebrecht
Nov 15 @ 10:00 am

Jewish Book Council Review by Maron L. Waxman

Place is the ostensible theme of this collection of short stories by Savyon Liebrecht, an admired and popular Israeli writer, with the title of each story naming its locale—”America,” “Kibbutz,” “Hiroshima,” “Tel Aviv,” “Munich,” “Jerusalem,” and the title story.

But the exactitude of geography offers no anchor to the characters in these stories. In the opening story, America is the imagined place of romance and adventure where the narrator’s mother lives with her new husband, having abandoned the narrator, then a young girl, and her father to a dreary routine existence in Jerusalem. Only many years later does the narrator learn about her mother’s life in America, casting an entirely new light on her life.

Where Art Begins: The Roots of the Artist in the Tree of Knowledge–Poet & Fiction Writer, David Ebenbach
Nov 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

What makes a person start painting, writing choreographing, composing or taking photographs as a way of self expression? And what if we were to believe that art is part of what makes us human? Award-winning author David Ebenbach will be exploring answers to these questions through the lens of one of western culture’s foundational creativity narratives: Genesis. People of all backgrounds and all levels of creative experience welcome. Special thanks to the UNCA English Department for arranging this evening. Email rochelle@jcc-org for more information.
