Watch and Learn: Exploring “Jewish” Through Film

Hosted By: Vilna Shul

Inspired by the interest in Netflix’s “Unorthodox,” this four part series will explore Jewish themes through TV and films, with a weekly at home screening and follow up conversations on zoom. Pieces include selections from Shtisel, The Woman’s Balcony, To Fill the Void, and Gett.

Please note that these selections are available on Netflix, and it will be up to each participant to secure and watch the TV/film selection.
