The Women's Balcony - Jewish Film Festival

When the synagogue’s women's balcony comes crashing down during a bar mitzvah, a local rabbi offers to repair the damage and lead the community. But soon, the new rabbi is promoting a stricter interpretation: maybe the balcony crashed because the women of the congregation are not modest enough? The women must organize to rebuild the balcony and reclaim their place in the congregation. Our closing day film, The Women’s Balcony has been charming Israeli  filmgoers and critics alike and is a”don’t miss” experience.Toronto International Film Festival 2016;Nominated for 5 Ophir (Israeli Academy) Awards “Viewers will leave the theater in a joyous mood.”  Variety
