Chicago Viewing of "Narrow Bridge"


Vicki Polin, Executive Director, The Awareness Center, Inc. said:
Here's your chance to see the acclaimed controversial film - "Narrow Bridge". It's the first film to address clergy sexual abuse in a Jewish community. A must see film!

A therapist who viewed the film said:
Narrow Bridge is a harrowing retelling of a situation that occurs much too frequently in our schools. As a mental health professional who treats sexually abused individuals I can state that while the film is not a big budget production, it goes directly to the issues that survivors must deal with as they approach the developmental milestones of their lives. I recommend the film for training, education and treatment purposes and hope that we all learn to deal with this crisis in our midst.

No date yet, but very soon I think. Let's keep checking at: http://www.narrowbridgefilm.com/screenings.htm
BTW, I've seen it, tears come to my eyes when I'm thinking about it. It's so sad what these kids have to live with, on a daily basis. May Hashem have compassion on them & heal them all. This film is so well done & EIDEL as well. It's a must see. can't wait for the big release.

He's a Jewish Press writer. I suppose he's innocent like Tendler. Which elderly rabbi in Israel will the editors falsely quote to that effect this time?
