Hineini (Hebrew for ‘Here I Am’) chronicles the story of one student’s courageous fight to establish a gay-straight alliance at a Jewish high school in the Boston area and the transformative impact of her campaign on everyone involved. The film takes us through her struggle to create a supportive environment for gay and lesbian students and teachers at the school, and shows a community wrestling with the very definition of pluralism and diversity. Directed by Irena Fayngold and produced by Idit Klein.
This free event is co-sponsored by the Kulanu Committee, Brotherhood/MRJ and Sisterhood/WRJ of Temple Israel of New Rochelle.
