The Quarrel is a Canadian movie taking place in Montreal in 1948. On Rosh Hashanah, Chaim (a Yiddish writer) is forced to think of his religion when he’s asked to be the tenth in a minyan. As he sits in the park, he suddenly sees an old friend whom he hasn’t seen since they quarreled when they were yeshiva students together. Hersh, a rabbi, survived Auschwitz and his faith was strengthened by his ordeal, while Chaim escaped the Nazis but had lost his faith long before. The two walk together, reminisce, and argue passionately about themselves, their actions, their lives, their religion, their old quarrel, and their friendship.
Before watching the movie, mark the end of Shabbat with a short Havdalah service.
After watching the movie, join in a discussion of the movie, facilitated by Rabbi Grossman.
Yummy snacks provided!
