JP Flicks presents “The Wedding Plan”

Saturday December 9th, 7:30 pm

This 2016 Israeli film was originally titled Through the Wall.  A 30-something, ultra-orthodox Jewish woman is jilted by her fiancé just 22 days before they take their vows. But instead of canceling the reception venue booked for the eighth day of Hanukkah, she trusts that fate in the form of the Almighty will provide a willing replacement and that the ceremony, like Celine Dion’s heart, will go on. Writer/Director Rama Burshtein approaches the issues in the film with a beautiful honest sincerity.

Discussion by Prof. Joel Rosenberg, noted scholar of Jewish literature at Tufts University.

Cost: $5/person (includes popcorn!)

Jewish-to-Jewish Phonebanking for a Clean Dream Act

Sunday December 10th, 4 – 6 pm

In the spirit of our learning through the Social Justice Beit Midrash, seeking to balance learning and doing, here is an opportunity to do! Join us to learn and make phone calls to Jews in key swing vote Congressional districts in support of a clean Dream Act. Lend your support for a bill that protects from deportation undocumented immigrants who came to this nation as children and provides them a path to citizenship, without trading their safety for the safety of other immigrant populations through increased enforcement or deportation measures.

To participate, register here; for more information, contact Naomi Sobel at naomi.sobel@gmail.com
