A Father’s Kaddish: Film & Discussion (In Person)

Immediately following our Passover Yizkor service, join us for a special viewing of A Father’s Kaddish. A Father’s Kaddish tells the story of how Steven Branfman used the art of pottery to help him work through his grief after the death of his 23-year-old son. The film is a potent and moving journey through the universal experience of loss, mourning, and rebuilding a life. This powerful film shows traditional and non-traditional ways for people to grieve. From one man’s poignant story at the intersection of love, art, and ritual comes a universal lesson for all who have experienced loss.

Immediately following the film, the film’s subject Steven Branfman will join for a discussion and talkback.
