Highland Park Conservative Temple-Congregation Anshe Emeth will continue its 18th annual Jewish film series at 8 p.m. with a screening of the Israeli drama “Scaffolding.”
17-year-old Asher is a troublemaker prone to angry outbursts in school. When Asher comes into contact with a gentle literature teacher, however, he finds kinship and a chance to expand his horizons, until a sudden tragedy forces him to grow up fast.
The screening will be followed with remarks via Skype by Ami Smolarchik, an Israeli actor who plays the teacher in the film. The screening and talk are open to the public at no charge (an $8 donation is suggested).
The final film in the series will be “The Humorist“ on March 7. Contact Udi Shorr at 732-819-9850.
