SYNAGOGUE SCREENINGS FOR MLK DAY 2018

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, Menemsha Films is the largest distributor of Jewish themed films in North America. Many of you recently licensed “The Women’s Balcony” from us for successful programming at your congregation. We have a vast catalogue of films for additional programming.

We specifically want to point out the film “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not be Silent” for the upcoming MLK Day January 15, 2018. “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent” is a documentary about the leading rabbi in 1930’s Berlin who emigrated to America. Rabbi Prinz became one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest confidantes and spoke just prior to Martin Luther King at the March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 . Rabbi Prinz’ address has been widely acclaimed throughout the history of the civil rights movement and is remembered for its contention that in the face of discrimination, “the most urgent, the most disgraceful, the most shameful and the most tragic problem is silence.”

In this time of racial tension, Rabbi Prinz is a leading example of empathy and taking action in the face of prejudice, standing up for those oppressed and living a righteous life.

Here is the link for the trailer for “Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent”.

For more information on Rabbi Prinz and to read the transcript of his speech, please see the website at http://www.joachimprinz.com/index.htm.

Please let me know if you would like a link to preview the film.

Best,
Heidi
