Israeli Film Festival Showing: “The Unorthodox”
January 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
It’s 1983 and the religious party in Israel is led by the Ashkenazi elite. Yakov Cohen, a Mizrahi printer in Jerusalem, doesn’t have money, connections, or political experience, but after his daughter is expelled from an Ashkenazi yeshiva, he decides that things need to change. The Unorthodox is a fictionalized account of the creation of Israel’s Shas party.
