100’s of jewish communities have been disappearing in Queens and around the greater New York City Area. This documentary exposes the story of one of them in what could be their last year opened, as well as the personal stories of the few elderly members that still remain and fight for the synagogue to keep it’s doors open.
The tremendous positive outlook of these individuals as they tell their stories is bittersweet, with the ominous cloud of the synagogues closure looming. A window to see the hope and strength of those left behind by inevitable change. This story speaks to those that have left their parents, home and community,as well as to the elderly left behind. It also an observation on the historic diasporal character of the larger Jewish community.
The topic certainly evokes strong feelings and it personally touched us. The documentary has significant interest, captured from those few survivors who remain. Attached is the full synopsis along with the video.Thanks and I look forward to hearing back from you.
