In her book, Rabbi Robbins uses the words of Psalm 27 to guide the reader on a journey of reflection through Elul, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot.

Movie Night: Fill the Void – Monday, August 10 – 7:00 pm

It’s time for Har HaShem’s next Movie Night!  Join us  for a free Zoom showing of “Fill the Void.” We’ve already watched Rama Burshtein’s “The Wedding Plan” at an earlier Movie Night.  Now see her first movie “Fill the Void.” This film takes place in modern day Israel where a young Hasidic woman dies in childbirth.  In order to keep her grandchild close, her 18-year-old sister is asked by their mother to cancel her upcoming marriage and marry her now-widowed brother-in-law instead. The younger daughter is played by Hadas Yaron who plays Libbi Shtisel, Akiva’s cousin and romantic interest in the Netflix series “Shtisel.”  The movie has won a number of prestigious awards.
