Film: The Quarrel, & Discussion: 8:45 PM • Selichot service: 11:00 PM
S’lichot services will follow the film screening and discussion of The Quarrel. Set in 1948 Montreal on Rosh Hashanah, The Quarrel tells the story of Chaim, a Yiddish writer, who is forced to think of his religion when he’s asked to be the tenth in a minyan. As he sits in the park, he suddenly sees an old friend whom he hasn’t seen since they quarreled when they were yeshiva students together. Hersh, a rabbi, survived Auschwitz and his faith was strengthened by his ordeal, while Chaim escaped the Nazis, but had lost his faith long before. The two walk together, reminisce, and argue passionately about themselves, their actions, their lives, their religion, their old quarrel, and their friendship. This special program, featuring a discussion led by Rabbi Herber, is a great introduction to the spiritual work we all need to do to prepare for the High Holidays.
