Due to the impending inclement weather, Saturday evening’s Celebration of Amos Oz and the showing of A Tale of Love and Darkness is postponed. We will re-schedule for a future date.
Gather to hear some of Amos Oz’s writings (in both Hebrew and in English) and watch the film A Tale of Love and Darkness. The film is based on Oz’s memoir of the same title and written and directed by Natalie Portman, with special attention paid to the life of Oz’s mother Fania Mussman (The film is rated PG-13, is in Hebrew with English sub-titles. and the running time is 95 minutes.) We will end the evening with havdalah.
Born in Jerusalem in 1939, Amos Oz’s life spanned critical moments of Israeli statehood, from its conception as a nation in 1948, through the conflicts of 1967 and 1973, as well as the ongoing struggles of both the First and Second Intifadas. He was 79 years old when he died on December 28, 2018.
