Film Screening – Repairing the World: Stories from the Tree of Life
February 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Repairing the World: Stories from the Tree of Life (80:00) documents Pittsburgh’s powerful community response to hate and antisemitism in the aftermath of the deadly attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in 2018 that killed eleven people.
For three years the film follows survivors, families of the victims, diverse community members, students and civic leaders as they examine their vulnerabilities and the impact of rising antisemitism, racism, hate speech, and gun violence. Against the backdrop of a tumultuous period in the country, a local community that has faced violence and trauma works to heal and grapple with what it means to be stronger than hate.
The film was produced by Not in Our Town (NIOT), the globally recognized team behind the public television films Waking in Oak Creek and Light in the Darkness.
Opening remarks from NIOT founder Patrice O’Neill.
Hosted by Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) and Minnesota JCC.
