This is your chance to catch the controversial, acclaimed film that has been making waves in the Orthodox Jewish community. it is the first film of its kind to break the silence on the issue of sexual abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community.

Daniel Schneider is a 21-year-old Orthodox Jewish college student who falls in love with fellow classmate, Rachel Goldstein. Rachel notices that Daniel is mysteriously reluctant to talk about his life before college and his hometown, where he has not visited for four years. As his relationship with Rachel develops, Daniel uncovers long-repressed memories of how he was sexually abused by his rabbi at twelve years old. His dark secret begins to distance the two of them and as Daniel refuses to confront his feelings, he watches his life as he knows it slowly unravel before his eyes. Daniel begins to question where he stands with his family, community, fiancé, and G-d. Narrow Bridge is an exploration of the power of love and faith amid trials, both human and divine.

This event is sponsored by The Awareness Center, Inc., which is the international Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault. For more information call: 443-857-5560
