Selichot is Saturday, September 5, 2015
7 p.m. This year we will be viewing the film Footnote, which won the best screenplay prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. Footnote is about the competition between a father and son over the Israel Prize. A.O Scott of the New York Times called it "a piercing satire, a poignant family drama and an investigation of the competing claims of honesty, loyalty, ambition, and love." This movie will surely get you thinking about many of the themes from the High Holy Days.
