I invite you to come with me to explore Jewish heritage in Spain from October 24th through November 2nd. The rebirth of Jewish life in Spain in recent years has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Shekinah: The Intimate Life of Hasidic Women is a feature documentary that takes us into the rarefied world of young Hasidic women living in Québec. The women are Chabad Lubavitch, a sect of Orthodox Hasidim. With unprecedented access, “Shekinah” explores the perspectives of these young women from school age through courtship and marriage.
The movie will be followed by a discussion with women from Chabad. Refreshments will be served. This is free and open to the public.
