3:00pm - 5:00pm  “Standing Silent”: Tisha B’av Screening and Q&A
On this day of mourning and reflection, we invite you to a screening of “Standing Silent”, a documentary following the efforts of former Baltimore Jewish Times Editor Phil Jacobs (father of YI member DeDe Jacobs-Komisar) in exposing child sexual abuse at the hands of prominent rabbis in the Baltimore Jewish community. An Orthodox Jew himself, Jacobs found himself ostracized by many in his own community determined to cover up the truth. Through a multiyear investigation featuring interviews with many abuse survivors, including recent Young Israel of Sharon speaker Genendy Radoff, Jacobs confronts not only the rabbinic establishment, but demons from his own past. Released in 2011, the message of “Standing Silent” remains urgent as ever in light of ongoing revelations in Jewish communities worldwide. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Phil Jacobs.
View the film’s trailer here:
