Join Bookclub-in-a-Box founder Marilyn Herbert as she attends a film and speaker special for a documentary called Doing Jewish: A Story From Ghana, presented by Kulanu Canada & Na’amat Canada Toronto.
Who would expect to find Jews in Ghana? Certainly not filmmaker Gabrielle Zilkha. But when she volunteered to work in Africa, and found herself alone as the Jewish New Year approached, she made a surprising connection with the Jewish Africans she met there. In remote Sefwi Wiawso, Zilkha encounters a group of practising, dedicated and devout Jews.
Meet Toronto filmmaker Gabrielle Zilka, purchase beautiful Ghanian challah covers, and support an isolated Jewish community by viewing this amazing, award-winning documentary.
