Saturday, May 20th at 7:00 p.m.
Please join us in the Social Hall to watch a movie followed by a discussion facilitated by educator Anita Moeller.
The evening’s entertainment will be Footnote, a film which won the Best Screenplay Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. “Brimming with dry Jewish humour and absurdist comedy set pieces that would make Larry David envious, Footnote is an intelligent gem. Eliezer (Shlomo Bar Aba) and his son Uriel (Lior Ashkenazi) are both professors of Talmud at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. When Uriel wins a prestigious scholarly prize instead of his father, long-festering jealousy and wounded pride threaten to upend their familial bond. You’ll never look at talmudic scholars the same way again.” – Leora Heilbronn, Canadian Jewish News
