Every year, on Rosh Hashanah, thousands of Israeli men leave their families and depart to a gray city in the center of Ukraine, to be near the Rabbi Nachman, to be a part of a yearning crowd, to feel. This film tells the story of Yair Agmon as he travels to Uman, to participate in this ritual and thank Rabbi Nachman for the personal redemption Yair was granted in the dark days after he and his wife were forced to go through a still birth in the seventh month of pregnancy. But this journey, which was supposed to lift Yair’s spirits and warm his heart, turned into a failed voyage. ” Like a Beating Heart” is a film about a frustrating spiritual journey and the ability of human beings, to transform disappointments and failures into comforts imbued with value. Join us as we screen the film together, followed by a discussion with Rabbi Chaya Gilboa and filmmaker Yair Agmon.
The zoom link will be sent to you in your reminder e-mail the day before the program. Please note that we will be viewing the film together during the gathering with a time for discussion and questions following.
