  • Sheesh! Go see it live if you can. These are good looking people, folks. They deserve to be seen in person and their work on a big screen not your little 15″ thing on the laptop.

  • This clears up a lot. I got a call from Rabbi Yonah about an hour ago, asking me (I’m in NY, remember) where “The Tribe” was playing. And I had no idea what he was talking about. Hope he found the theater–or maybe he’s still wandering around Hollywood Boulevard…

  • Just watched it online… figured I’m not in LA, so I wasn’t going to be able to see it live. I have to give it credit, it’s well done, and made me laugh quite a few times. It’s not wholly accurate from any sort of “Orthodox” perspective, but it does give a great insite into “Cultural Judaism” and where a lot of people are coming from these days.

    I’m just wondering when the breaking of the glass under the chupah became a message of our fragility and our rememberance of Aushwitz as opposed to a rememberance that even at the happy occation of a wedding we still have to be a bit sad because we lack a Temple in Jerusalem. I mean, we don’t sing Im Eskachaich after we break the glass for nothing…
