Temple Sinai Movie Night & Art Exhibit featuring ‘My Hero Brother’

February 3, 2018 , 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

title: JDAIM Movie Night & Art Exhibit featuring “My Hero Brother”
description: In recognition of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month, Temple Sinai will present a screening of “My Hero Brother” after Havdalah. Following the movie, Enosh Cassel, producer and founder, will join via Skype for a Q&A session. Enjoy refreshments afterward while viewing a special exhibit featuring artwork by artists with disabilities.

“My Hero Brother” tells the remarkable story of a group of young people with Down Syndrome that embark on a demanding trek through the Indian Himalayas, accompanied by their brothers and sisters.

As the siblings deal with formidable physical and emotional challenges, unresolved conflicts come to surface and heart-warming friendship develop. The difficult trails and poignant relationships, set against the richly colorful backdrop of India, open new horizons and greatly deepen the viewer’s understanding of special needs people and their families.
