Our popular documentary film and discussion series continues. Join us for a screening of Gut Shabbes Vietnam. Share your thoughts about the film and enjoy some popcorn!
A clash of cultures is at the core of this uplifting documentary. A young Israeli couple who are emissaries of the Chabad Movement are sent to Vietnam – on a one-way ticket – to encourage and create a Jewish community in this Communist country. The faithful two quickly find that even the simplest daily routines such as eating, shopping, communicating and crossing the road prove to be much more complicated than they anticipated.
Lisa Silverman will be in conversation with Chabad Rabbi Chaim Sperlin, who will discuss his reaction to the film.
