Info: HINEINI (Hebrew for “Here I am”) chronicles the story of one student’s courageous fight to establish a gay-straight alliance alliance at a Jewish high school in the Boston area and the transformative impact of her campaign on her entire community. The film allows the members of this community to tell their own stories. What emerges is a potent and inspiring story of Jewish pluralism and a community navigating the cross-currents of Jewish tradition and social change. Discussion with local Rabbis and a representative from Keshet to follow film. Keshet is a grassroots organization dedicated to creating a fully inclusive Jewish community for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) Jews.
