Cut: Slicing Through the Myths of CircumcisionSunday, February 10, 2008 7:00 pm
Produced and directed by Eli Ungar-Sargon, Cut traces the journey of a man struggling to come to terms with his Jewish identity in the 21st century. Through the lens of the ancient Jewish ritual of male circumcision, Cut asks what happens when Jewish tradition collides with modern values of autonomy and individuality.
Following the screening, an esteemed panel discussed this provocative topic. Ungar-Sargon signed copies of the film's DVD after the discussion.
The Alex and Klara Tulsky Symposium on the Jewish Future was an annual program that focused on specific challenges facing the American Jewish community. Topics explored identity, health and healing, and the meaning of continuity in contemporary Jewish life.
