TISHA B'AV Film Screening: Shekinah Rising

  • Rohr Chabad NDG is proud to present...

    Our 10th Annual Tisha B'Av Service and Film Screening  + Break Fast

    Join us for a traditional Tisha B'AV service followed by the sneak pre-screening of SHEKINAH RISING - and a Q&A with the the film's producers. Delicious break-your-fast meal will follow.


    Shekinah Rising opens the door with unprecedented access to the hermetically sealed Hasidic community. Never before have members of the community revealed so much – particularly women -- about their intimate lives and especially for the cameras.

    Shekinah Rising offers a rare opportunity to understand the lives of these largely misunderstood orthodox women and the challenges they face in their early years of womanhood.

    The film brings us to Ste. Agathe, Quebec, to a seminary for young Hasidc woman; to Crown Heights, New York to hear a Hasidic alternative-rock girl band; to Jerusalem for an orthodox-Jewish-feminist spoken word performance; to Paris where four Jewish hostages were murdered in a kosher grocery; to Belgium for a talk about sexual relations at the European Union; to London to visit a seminary student who was recently divorced and considering whether she should remain in the fold; and to a gathering of over 3000 community leaders, teachers, artists and pioneers committed to bringing peace and tolerance to Earth for all people. One more good deed, they believe, may be all that's needed.

    The Jewish mystics say the Shekinah is rising.  Women everywhere are taking their rightful place and this feminine force is transforming the world .

    Shown in HD on Chabad's Projection Screen.
