Praying with Lior 
   
Saturday, April 27
7:00 PM
Hakafa Offices at the North Shore United Methodist Church

(213 Hazel Avenue, Glencoe)
   
Shot over three years in a close-knit Jewish Reconstructionist community in Philadelphia, "Praying with Lior" documents the extraordinary life of Lior Liebling. Lior is the son of two rabbis and has Down syndrome.  He also has an intense love of prayer, which is revealed as Lior prepares for his bar mitzvah.  As one reviewer put it, this documentary, which won multiple awards and was acclaimed by audiences around the world, “challenges our beliefs about who and how one speaks to God.”
   
We are delighted to have our very own Rabbi Bruce Elder present this movie.
      

Come for dinner at 6:00 PM!
