The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington is pleased  to  join with The Ryder in co-sponsoring the Israeli film, "The Women's Balcony."

A huge box office hit in Israel, The "Women's Balcony" is a portrait of a devout Jewish community in Jerusalem suddenly under pressure from an Ultra-Orthodox rabbi to observe their faith in a more rigid way.  While on the surface, a  gently affectionate comedy,  the film also makes some powerful points about fanaticism, sexism masked as holiness, and tolerance among the faithful.

      "It's impossible to resist a film that has such rich characters and makes a complicated subject both enlightening and entertaining."   Peter Keough,  Boston Globe, 6/4/2017
