Israeli Movie Night: "The Women's Balcony"

Saturday, January 28, 2023 6 Shevat 5783

7:00 PM - 9:00 PMSocial Hall

Join us for the 2016 Israeli comedy movie "The Women's Balcony" (ישמח חתני)! Sponsored by the Israel Action Committee.


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.
