Schenectady Jewish Film Festival Presents: “Rabbi On The Block”

Tamar Manasseh, the charismatic rabbi and community activist from the south side of Chicago, wants African Americans and Jews to become closer allies. With one foot firmly in each of these two communities, Black Jews like Tamar are the natural bridge to help overcome decades of fear, misunderstanding, and lack of communication. Rabbi on the Block is a feature length documentary film that will show how Manasseh brings together Jews of all colors and is building bridges that will serve as the foundation for a revitalized alliance of African Americans and Jews while creating a new style of activist Judaism that takes the religion out of the synagogue and into the streets.

Tickets are $7.00 for SJCC members and $12 for non-members. You may call SJCC at: 518-377-8803 to register.

Rabbi Matt Cutler will lead a discussion following the film.
