Film Club

We are pleased to announce the first six months of the Muswell Hill Synagogue Film Club!

The first film – Au Revoir les Enfant – was due to be screened last month but, unfortunately, this had to be postponed due to inclement weather conditions.  Look out for re-scheduling of this showing.

So, the first of our screenings will now be taking place on Sunday, 18 March.  The film being shown is the multi-award winning “The Lemon Tree” by Eran and Ira Riklis.  Set in the West Bank, where Palestinian widow Salma Zidane tends her lemon grove. However, when Israeli Defense Minister Navon moves in across the way, his security guards demand she removes the trees, which could shelter terrorists. Refusing to bow down, she engages lawyer Ziad Daud to take her case to the Supreme Court, which brings international attention.

The evening will start with a short presentation from Rabbi David to frame the film.  This will be followed by the screening and then a discussion, led by Rabbi David, about themes and issues raised in the film.

Cinema refreshments (food and drink) will be available throughout the evening!  £3.00 entry to cover costs of refreshments is requested.
