Havdala & Social Action Film Series
January 28 – 5:00 p.m.
The Social Action Committee is hosting a film series this year focused on the topic: Women, Men and Religious Traditions: Judaism, Islam and Christian Fundamentalism. The second movie is Philomena. When former journalist Martin Sixsmith is dismissed from the Labour Party in disgrace, he is at a loss as to what do. That changes when a young Irish woman approaches him about a story of her mother, Philomena, who had her son taken away when she was a teenage inmate of a Catholic convent. Martin arranges a magazine assignment about her search for him that eventually leads to America. Along the way, Martin and Philomena discover as much about each other as about her son’s fate. Furthermore, both find their basic beliefs challenged. Starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Click here to watch the trailer.
Rabbi Brockman will lead Havdala Service prior to the movie. The event is free and open to the public. Please consider helping SAC’s ongoing collections of food and clothing. Light refreshment will be served.
