Part one of the Spring Israeli Film Series, Ushpizin will be screened from 6:00-8:00 pm in 325 Shillman. The first film made by members of the Israeli ultra-Orthodox community in collaboration with secular filmmakers provides a touching and unique look at the daily lives of ultra-Orthodox Jews as they question and explore their faith. Writer Shuli Rand stars with his real-life wife, Mechal Bat Sheva Rand, as a husband and wife whose love is tested and faith is challenged when a secret from the past reveals itself during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
