Film Mosaic – “Arranged”

Tuesday June 20

8.00 pm.    Shown at the London Jewish Film Festival, this is a thoroughly enjoyable film that looks at the parallel lives of two young women who meet and become friends whilst teaching at a college in Brooklyn, New York. One of the women is an Orthodox Jewess and the other a traditional Muslim. As their friendship develops, over the course of a year, they begin to realise they have more in common with each other than with their other more worldly colleagues. Furthermore, they are both dealing with their families’ expectations and preparations for them to accept arranged marriages.  The filmmakers focus on these two delightful young women as they go through the process of meeting prospective grooms. The various suitors are at times highly unsuitable and it is hilarious to behold these two young women negotiate the pressure that is put upon them to make a ‘good’ marriage whilst they wish to maintain their own rights and individuality.

Friday July 07

P1002736-2Mosaic Liberal invites everyone to join us for Kabbalat Shabbat – our contemplative Friday Night service which invites us to leave behind the busy-ness of the week and experience the precious gift of peace (shalom), rest (menucha) and renewal (nafash) that Shabbat offers.

Here is a space for quiet reflection, personal prayer, music to lift the spirit (ruach) and heart-warming translations of new and familiar prayers that help us worship in a meaningful way.

If you are not familiar with Hebrew, you will find the prayers have been transliterated so you can easily follow along.  We look forward to sharing this time with you.
