The next film in our Jewish Film Series is “13th.”
In this thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom. Director Ava DuVernay explores the injustices at the heart of America’s painful racial history by examining the systemic failures of the penal system.
This film is available on Netflix. Please view the film at your leisure and then join Rabbi Gluck and Reverend Lukata Mjumbe, pastor of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church, on Zoom for a discussion of the themes of the film as part of Temple Beth-El’s continuing discussion of racial justice.
