Mourning Prayer is a short documentary following the closing weeks of Temple Emanuel at Parkchester, a conservative Jewish synagogue that will close this year after a history of more than 60 years. When it shuts its doors after the Jewish High Holidays this year, it will close a chapter on one of the last reminders of what was once a vibrant Jewish community in the Bronx.

This 12-minute cut was produced for a narrative video class at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
