Menashe
Menashe

Fri. 9/1 - Thurs. 9/7

(NR) 1 Hr. 21 Min. (Digital) Yiddish with English subtitles (Drama)

In this touching drama, Menashe is a grocery store clerk in New York’s ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, struggling to make ends meet and responsibly parent his young son, Rieven, following his wife Leah’s death. Tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven’s strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken. His rabbi, however, grants him one special week with Rieven before Leah’s memorial. It’s his chance to prove himself a suitable man of faith and fatherhood, and restore respect among his doubters.
