TEHORA: Breaking the Codes of Silence
Join KN, Edware Masorti (EMS), and Hatch End Masorti (HEMS) on September 5th for a film featuring Rabbi Natalie Lastreger, who came to the Masorti Women’s Study Day in New London Synagogue a few months ago from Israel to talk about her experience leaving the Haredi world and becoming a Masorti Rabbi. "Tehora: Breaking the Codes of Silence" offers a peek into the Jewish ritual of purification. This documentary film broke taboos and examined how the laws of Taharat Hamishpaha (family purity) shape women’s lives and sexuality within Orthodox Judaism. (For more on the film, visit https://www.anatzuria.com/our_story - scroll to the bottom). Come see the film over coffee and cake, followed by a discussion on the issues raised in the film. Thanks to Raya at EMS for putting this event together!
DATE: Tuesday, September 5th
COST: £5 for Masorti members, £10 otherwise
