Ushpizin

Mar 3 - Mar 5, 2006

Directed by Gidi Dar
Rated PG, 90 min. - subtitled

Underwritten by Temple Har Shalom

A devote sweet-natured orthodox Jew who lives in Jerusalem prays for a miracle on the eve of a Jewish holiday. Cast entirely with orthodox actors this charming tale of fortune and tests of faith is an exuberant blend of the sacred and the profane and an unusually sensitive look at the everyday concerns of a Hassidic community. The film?s strict adherence to Jewish religious law in both its content and the conditions of its production might have narrowed its potential audience but its buoyant and assured style makes it a film of universal appeal.

Groundbreaking ? a joyous affirmation of unshakeable faith. - The New York Times
