Come with me to the Movies

Join me for a humorous look at identity, conversion and finding yourself – in this case – as an ultra Orthodox Jew.  We’ll view an East Bay Premiere of:

Circumcise Me!

USA, 2007, 47 minutes, English

“Is it hot in here, or am I the only one dressed for Poland in the 17th Century?” While Yisrael Campbell certainly looks like an Ultra-Orthodox rabbi with his long black coat, big black hat and side curls, he is also a comedian who converted to Judaism not once but three times. In this hilarious and soul-searching stand-up routine/documentary, he talks about his spiritual journey—from a drugged up teen in Philadelphia to a comic in Jerusalem.
