Humanities Building, Humanities Lecture Hall-Room 1032

Dr. Aviva Taubenfeld will deliver this lecture, she is an Associate Professor of Literature and Writing at Purchase College. 

An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a rift between the men and women in a devout community in Jerusalem in this rousing, good-hearted comedy. Awash with Jerusalem’s distinctive glow, The Woman’s Balcony is a warm, poignant portrait of a modern community struggling to balance protocol with practical, progressive values-at once rebellious and respectful in spirit.
