Harmonia (Hebrew with English subtitles)

Join us for our annual Boston Jewish Film Festival Yom Shabbat featuring the 2016 Israeli film Harmonia, which received five Israeli Academy Award nominations. The plot is a contemporary adaptation of the biblical tale of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar, set in the world of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor Abraham and his wife Sarah, the orchestra’s harpist, cannot have children. Hagar, a beautiful, young horn player from East Jerusalem, offers to have a baby with Abraham for the couple. The biblical story plays out in modern Jerusalem, exposing ancient conflicts and their effects on Israel today.

There will be a short discussion following the film moderated by Rabbi Jaffe.

Jaymie Saks, executive director of the Boston Jewish Film Festival will introduce the film and give us a first look at the 2018 BJFF with several sneak previews of films in the 2018 lineup.
