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.
PONEVEZH TIME (2015, 52min)
This film provides an unprecedented glimpse into the largest ultra-orthodox seminary in the world. We discover that amidst the constant prayer and scholarly study are fragile confused young men, with hopes, dreams, and worries often not so different from our own.
