Narrative Israel 2021
Hebrew with English subtitles

As part of the EDCJCC’s High Holiday Day of Learning and Celebration, Day of Awesome, JxJ screens episode 1 of the new Israeli TV Series (based on the hit movie) The Women’s Balcony.

The cast of the acclaimed hit Israeli comedy The Women’s Balcony is reunited for a new TV series that moves the film’s story forward – giving us a chance to revisit the warm-hearted, tightly-knit neighborhood of Jerusalem’s Bukharim Quarter.

Five women at the heart of the Orthodox community there find themselves at personal, professional and family crossroads. As their lives change, they lean on each other and their synagogue for friendship, humor, and support.

JxJ is showing episode 1 of the series during the Day of Awesome. Eps 2-3 (and a repeat showing of eps 1) will be shown later in the fall.


A High Holiday Day of Learning and Celebrations for families and individuals of all ages. 32 programs happening throughout the day plus vendors selling High Holiday gifts, and food options from Shmaltz Brothers.

Choose between text study with a Rabbi, meditation, Israeli Dancing, beekeeping, screening the first episode of the Israeli TV series The Women’s Balcony AND MORE!
