Join us for a delicious middle eastern meal followed by the film Arranged. The film tells the story of Rochel, an Orthodox Jew, and Nasira a Muslim of Syrian origin, both young teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. They also have something else in common – they are going through the process of getting “arranged marriages” through their respective religious and traditional customs. With family pressure on the one hand, and the rejection of traditional values by the outside world on the other, Rochel and Nasira will have to rely on each other and their friendship to pull through this difficult time of their lives, striving to be strong women in charge of their own happiness, while keeping their deep religious and cultural convictions.
The cost for dinner is $15 per person. Register by Wednesday, September 7 below or by calling 314-434-3404.
