Description

Shekinah takes us into the rarefied world of young Hasidic women living what some consider an 18th-century way of life in 21st century Québec. With unprecedented access, Shekinah explores the women’s perspectives. Their relationships with men are based on the Kabbalah, they see God as both masculine and feminine, and they believe marriage is pre-ordained in heaven. Their revelations break longstanding stereotypes and unveil the secrets of this mysterious world.

Film subject Chanie Carlebach will be in attendance.

Tickets: $17, $12 (students and seniors)
