Meet Us At The Movies: Selichot Edition

Saturday, September 9 at 8:15 p.m. at Beth Shalom

Tiger Within

“Tiger Within” follows Casey, 14, a troubled teenager who lives in Los Angeles. After running away from her neglectful mother and failing to find support from her father, Casey takes shelter in a cemetery, where she meets Samuel (Asner), an elderly man visiting his wife’s grave. Samuel, a Holocaust survivor, notices the swastika on Casey’s signature leather jacket and begins a conversation, eventually offering Casey some food and a safe place to sleep. The two form an unlikely friendship, which gradually blossoms into a new family unit – him providing her the support and guidance that was lacking in her life, and her offering him the glimpse of the fatherhood that was torn from him in Dachau. Over the course of their friendship, she learns about the realities of the Holocaust and Samuel fulfills a promise he made to his deceased wife.

“A redemptive story about the power of forgiveness and unconditional love to transform lives and overcome ignorance, fear and hate…” Gerri Miller, Jewish Journal

Before watching the movie, mark the end of Shabbat with a short Havdalah service. After watching the movie, join in a discussion of the movie, facilitated by Rabbi Greenspan.

Yummy snacks provided!

A Selichot service will follow the movie discussion.
