Jews of Calabria

September 25, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Sisterhood of Anshe Sholom presents a special screening of “The Secret Jews of Calabria.” The return of Italian-American Rabbi Barbara Aiello to her ancestral village in Calabria, Sicily, to encourage the locals to discover their Jewish heritage, is not universally welcomed (by either Jews or Christians). Rabbi Aiello, the first and only female rabbi in Italy, serves congregation Ner Tamid del Sud, (The Eternal Light of the South), the first active synagogue in Calabria in the 500 years since the Inquisition.  Rabbi Frank Tamburello will join us to provide his personal insights, and answer questions after the film. REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED.

COST: $5.00 RSVP BY SEPTEMBER 19TH
