With a recent wave of documentaries and feature films about and produced within the ultra-Orthodox community, there has never been a greater opportunity to glimpse inside that characteristically enclosed world. Join the Jewish Studies Program this Spring for a series of four movies focusing on the experience of Orthodox Jews in America and abroad. Held at 7PM in Arnold Hall, screenings are free and open to the public.
