This new Yiddish language film is an unusual love story. An elderly religious Jewish man working in a morgue as a shomer (a person who keeps the body company until it is ready for burial) is plunged into remembering his past when the body of his long-lost first love arrives. In flashback memories, he recalls their meeting in a deserted Lithuanian barn during the Nazi invasion when both were hiding from the killing squads. Their fear and desperation turn into love and a pledge of eternal commitment -- until an unexpected intrusion changes everything. The intensity and quiet beauty of this film provoke reflection on love, forgiveness, and coming to terms with the past. 83 minutes, in Yiddish with English subtitles. Followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.
Co-Sponsored by Adat Ari El, Temple Ramat Zion, and CSUN Hillel

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.
We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century
